Bringing you stories from the world of wine and beer.
So day one has finished on our mini tour of Beaujolais. Long day but worth it.
Having left London first thing this morning, 30/1/12, we arrived at Lyon around 10.20, France time.

We began the day with a quick bite at Calad’in Comptoir before heading off to the first of two tastings.
Our locations were at Chateau de Montmelas and Chateau de Cercy. In all we sampled 18 wines. Full accounts will be given on my return.
In the meantime it’s feet up, watch Kill Bill in French and have a well earned snooze. 4 more wineries to attack tomorrow.
