Champagnes and Foies Gras!

From December 3 to December 5, champagne and foie gras producteurs all over France will gather and showcase their goods at the Centre de Congrès L'Espace Tête d'Or in Villeurbanne.

Additionally, there will be wines and other French Christmas specialties, such as candied chestnuts and "calissons", i.e. "lozenge-shaped sweet made of iced marzipan".

Entrance costs 5 euros/person. However, you can attend for free by requesting invitations from Vinomedia. Follow this link and fill out the required information. An invitation for two will be mailed to you within a couple of days.
