Monday, we will leave Singapore for Japan, Tokyo, Osaka and other places and many events, tastings, interviews… back in Bordeaux on February 16.
Caroline et Léo Shinohara are already there and organized a busy schedule as I don’t like to do such long and expensive trips only to give me «good conscience». They should actually be done as promotional tours. Which will be the case.
