Toulouse: the Salon du Vin and the Salon du Chocolat, this weekend at MEETT, the new Parc des Expositions
The Vins & terroirs fair and the Chocolat & gourmandises fair, are held from October 29 to November 1, at the new Parc des Expositions, the MEETT, in Beauzelle.
Gourmets and epicureans have an appointment from Friday October 29 to Monday November 1 inclusive, for the first time at MEETT, the new Toulouse Exhibition Center, to discover two exhibitions in one: “Wines & Terroirs” and “Chocolat & Gourmandises” . Only one entry will be necessary for the two shows, depending on the stands of the 300 producers.
With some 300 different aromatic compounds, chocolate, they say, has as many scent nuances as wine. Visitors have four days to make sure of it, to meet the best appellations and grands crus of wine or cocoa.
Bottles at “direct producer” prices to build your ideal cellar
After two years of absence, the great regional meeting of gourmets promotes more than ever short circuits, for four days instead of three during previous editions: “This year, we have decided to offer producers a fourth day. , taking advantage of the Monday, November 1, holiday, to help relaunch their activity after a difficult period, and allow visitors additional flexibility, ”underlines Olivier Cahuzac, director of the Toulouse Events trade shows.
