Catching Up With a Wine Event

Better late than never! Back on May 31st, Prince Robert attended the inauguration of La Cité du Vin, a "cultural facility" (or, more simply, a museum) that explores the impact of wine across media and from various perspectives: arts, geology, geography, history, and so forth.

The facility is now open to the public, but the prince attended a pre-public opening that saw numerous other dignitaries including French President Hollande, the Mayor of Bordeaux, the Prime Minister of Georgia and other ministers from Georgia, a selection of foreign ambassadors (including US, UK, Georgia, and Moldova), regional presidents and prefects within France, other elected politicians from France, individuals from foreign consulates, and still many more. It was quite the gathering of more than 1000 guests, many of whom arrived by arranged river boats.

No photos at present, but a little more about the event here.
