Fellow #winelovers,

We have a very important task this month!

“I’m sure all wine lovers are interested in preserving France’s unique collection of grape varieties. The collection is under threat. It would be great if all 12,000+ wine lovers signed this petition.” Jim Budd

We worked yesterday on getting it translated to several different languages to make it easier for you to understand. Thank you so much to everyone of you who is helping with the project. Here are the links we have so far:
