Wine Fair : Bonjour Wine Fair Vivocity (8 to 11 Nov 07)

Hello readers, sorry about this late posting for the Bonjour Wine Fair currently going on at Vivocity. The wine shop participants of the Fair included Bottles & Bottles, Le Rouge, Cold Storage and Indoguna. Pretty small set up, and space was probably cannibalized by the other French products, cheese, apples, etc. The wines displayed were pretty pedestrian and not something I would be excited about. Though two vendors were selling Reserve de la Comtesse, one vintage 2004 at $68, and the lady was experienced enough to say it was a classical year. The other vendor proclaimed that the 2001 going for $59.90 was a very good year (?!).
Well I managed to pop into Bottles & Bottles and found the better deal than any at the Bonjour wine fair. 2 bottles of Penfolds 389 vintage 2004 were going for $102. i.e. each bottle going for $51.
If you were visiting Vivocity for other than the wine fair, then I guess it may be alright swinging by to take a look, otherwise it will not be a shame if you missed it.
