We are in the midst of a heatwave here in France as are a lots of countries in Europe, today was the hottest day of the year so far, the thermometer in the garden hit 42 Degs and its due to get hotter later this week.
Even the pets stayed inside all day, Miel was out this morning but she soon came running inside as the day heated up.
After a day of working on the computer and a quick swim in the pool we headed over to Clos Rocaileux which is owned and run by Jack and Margaret Reckitt who have been making wine here for the last five years. On Tuesdays at 6pm they take people on tours of their vineyard and winery.
We meandered through each of the wine plots tasting the wine that is produced from each grape variety.
Jack explaining the intricacies of caring for the vines.
We did try the wine in the bottle he had in his hand.
Glasses in hand
Yes that is a box of wine in Kevs hand, 3 of the early vintage red and 3 of the reserve red which will be laid down for a few years… well maybe not all of them.
I would highly recommend doing this wine tour or just a visit to the vineyard, you will receive a very warm welcome.
