« Clos des Grillons (Rhone) | Main | Open doors in a Loire winery »

April 20, 2012



I've only just recently started to embrace french wines and I have to be honest..I'm in love. I have always been under the impression that you really cant taste the difference of a wine from another region because they are all pretty much made the same. Such an amateur move on my part. On my journey to becoming a true enthusiast I am realizing that there is a truly distinct difference. Now I just have to get my friends on the same page.


I like this post, very good review and the photos are heartwarming !


This site is really great with so many good interviews from major wines producers. Too bad that I can't share the link to my Facebook page since the button does not work!

Great commentary about Patrice and Virginie's winemaking passion. I admire their tenacity to stick to their roots and not be motivated by what is fashionable. They live in a unique region, their vineyard has a history and they understand the terroir. Bravo to them for not strictly abiding by the rules of the AOC. Their wine stands on its merits and from what I read it is a great product.

After spending 6 years living in Aix en Provence (I'm from New Zealand) I am a strong advocate of French wines and have developed a taste for the old world way of winemaking.

Great blog, great article. I like your penmanship!
