Hi, I went to a small wine tasting event last Sunday. not like this Salon though. I've tasted 30 kinds of wines. It's too much for me. Ofcourse, I just tasted, not drunk all of them. I'm a quite light drinker. I liked almost of the wines and bought a few bottle of wine below.

Ch. Du Grand Moeuys, Clairet
Domaine Chaume Arnaud, Vin de Pays Portes de Mediteramet

Both are inexpensive. about 1400 yen each. The Clairet was a traditional way to make a red wine, it said. and smell Fraise. Very Fraise! the color was like Rose wine's. I think it would be nice to drink with friends casually.
I wanted to buy some the others, but can't afford to buy them. lol Besides, I can buy them whenever I want. The shop owner said that he had the wine in stock yet. :)


I made one mistake.

I agree with your view that babies MUST be brought along to wine tastings--great point!

A lot of interesting stories in this post. Very enjoyable. (I haven't seen Sideways though, and from the previews it seemed pretentious and preachy. I could imagine that they got merlot wrong in the movie. How well does that movie do in France?)


The movie theater was full when we went to see it , and it was a weekday . I think many of us were curious about this american road movie with wine as background, and so were indulgent with several aspects of the movie and its characters . Of course , wasting a supposedly great wine alone and in a plastic glass was maybe too much to swallow... But real life is weird like that sometimes .
