Tonnellerie de Mercurey
A different way of making wine barrels
The eighth annual Vitis Vinifera Awards took place in the first week of November at the Nietvoorbij campus.

Vitis Vinifera Awards want to partner with industry leaders and companies who have a long-standing commitment to the wine and spirit industry.
