It is always a thrill to receive the published author print copy of my new book. I do hope you can enjoy it and more than that I hope you can make the trip yourselves one day soon. Stay safe.
Our journey through the vineyards of the Languedoc is typical of the kindness and generosity shown to us by winemakers throughout France, from the Loire down through Burgundy to Provence. To taste wine and experience the pleasure of visiting the cellars and vineyards in the company of a knowledgeable and proud wine producer is a delight never forgotten.
As with my other three books that tell of our memorable encounters with the people and places of France this one is designed not specifically as a guide book but to inspire and encourage you to travel as soon as it is possible. I know you will not be disappointed.
However, I have in this book given the location and contact details of the vineyards and cellars we visited and all I am sure will delight you when you turn up at that cellar or domaine door
I apologize in advance for the overuse of the word ‘terroir’ and sadly I am still unable to give you a definitive definition of this uniquely French term.
