Inspiration for my writing Wine labels collected in France

Writing my new book Sharing with Angels I gain inspiration from this collection of wine labels from the vineyards of France we have visited

Starting my New book on French wine with wine glass in hand

A bottle of your finest Blue Nun waiter, merci. That I think was the extent of my ability to order a bottle of wine back in the 1970’s. The only other wine that was in my consciousness would be Crown of Crowns Liebfraumilch, a wine that at the time seemed very exotic. In its own way a bottle that today would be like Chateau Petrus in my aspirations.

Discovering French Wine and vineyards

I am well along in writing my fourth book (working title – SHARING WITH ANGELS) on travels in France and this one is particularly enjoyable as it is about our times touring the French wine regions. We started our wine education down in Languedoc Roussillon but it really started with an organised wine tour to Burgundy and the Loire. Our confidence grew and we made many independent trip to the vineyards and made many wonderful finds, many well off the beaten track.
