Wine Not Wine
Wine Not think about Wine Travel!
Hope you visited some wineries this fall. We took travelers to Bordeaux on a river cruise and through Provence in September and went with a food/wine group to Piedmont in October, new wine regions for us. Consider wine travel for your next trip! We just received our shipment from our friend Jason Haas at Tablas Creek, can't wait to try some! Check out the Finger Lakes, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, or Bordeaux, Provence, and Piedmont next summer.
Looking forward to visiting more wineries next year and giving thanks with friends.
We have been tasting a lot of wine this fall making up for lost time during COVID. The Bordeaux, Provence and Piedmont areas are both iconic wine regions that shouldn't be missed. Bordeaux is easy via a river cruise, Provence by car is easy to explore, Piedmonte takes a bit more planning, but our friends at Vino Venue made it happen, with great food.
