How did it go?

wisteriaA lovely day today, the first cuckoo, breakfast outside and a sunny picnic lunch, after the success of the Portes Ouvertes yesterday.

Thanks largely to all the hard work of our excellent team here; lots of people came and seemed to enjoy the wine, the domaine and themselves.

cheese tableTwo great new cheese matches for the wines – with the Chateau Unang rosé 2013 a delicious hard Tome from Sardinia and a cousin of Brie le Pierre Robert smooth and creamy with Le Croix (still talking about cheese here!) – thank you to the Fromagerie Vigier for their advice and exceptional products.

Also on show was the nougat from Freres Sylvain in St Didier and some of Ruchofruits‘ best from Flassan – the chutney de Coing (quince) was a very happy discovery for many visitors.  (These are two of the main ingredients in our picnics ‘Terraces de Comtat’ available during the spring and summer.)picnic table
