On Saturday September 5, I’ll be flying to Istanbul to take part in Crystal Cruises very special Wine & Food Festival.
I’ll be presenting and pouring wines from Bodegas Ordoñez as well as a few wines selected from the OroGroup collection. Shame I won’t have time to go all the way to Barcelona but I can’t complain about a few day’s work cruising on the Mediterranean. And I’ll be in good company…
