It is always a little sad when our summer trip to the Continent is over.
What have we learnt?
Another early start to visit Domaine Berthet-Rayne in the Southern Rhône village of Cairanne.
The final visit on our 2015 summer trip is to Domain Bourdon in the heart of Burgundy region situated on the edge of the village of Pouilly–Fuissé.
Domaine de Grangeneuve
Another day – another winery.
I must admit after 13 days visiting wineries we felt a little tired at the start of today but the visit to Grangeneuve revitalised us!
Château Roquette sur mer
Firstly today we visited Château Roquette sur mer in the La Clape region of Languedoc, this is a brand new wine for us and we were so privileged to visit this unique site.
After lunch in La Clape we joined the A9 and travelled north to Sommieres here we visited yet another new winery to us.
Third stop Chateau Spencer la Pujade
Today 3 visits & 3 different regions!
Second stop Domaine des Homs
First stop Domaine la Grangette
Jonathan and Rachel Treloar own and run this small, highly-regarded vineyard and winery in the Roussillon, France's most exciting wine region.

5.00 pm and we are tasting for the 2nd time today here in beautiful Rioja Alta.
