Another day, another bottle of wine ... or two!
Le Lude is a brand new winery, reminding me of Versailles-
and magnificent views of the mountains-
The wine was pretty good too! Their speciality is the Cap Classique which is South African for champagne. Only wine produced in the Champagne region of France can be called champagne.
I've never seen quince growing - it's a fruit with apple and pear characteristics that turns yellow when ripe-
La Petite Dauphine has an elegant eating area-
with fabulous desserts-
The grapes at Holden Manz-
are almost ready to harvest. What a beautiful area-
My last winery belongs to Sir Richard Branson, the British billionaire, where all wine is aged at least 6 years after it has been removed from the oak barrel. It was very good-
