Vinouring 2018: Cotes de Provence in Menton

So there are several reasons you might care about this post.  If you’re a wine lover, foodie or Francophile, you’ll be glad to see that we’re finally done with Italy and are enjoying our first meal in France (for this tour).  If you’re into photography, you’ll be impressed by the layout of the featured photo, which has relegated nearly everything else on our small table to the right and out of the frame, so I can show off the nice shadow of the wine glass (which, as an aside, doesn’t impress my partner so much – she watches all this with tolerant amusement, since it isn’t slowing down the all important meal itself).  And, if there are any bikers in the audience, you might be interested in the mile long tunnel that doubles as a bicycle museum.  As a bonus, there’s even something here for the dog lovers among you.

You can see the wonderful wine photo in the post, but you’ll have to look here for all the other great stuff.

This is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real description when I get more time.

    Bonjour Scott et Rachael,
    Bienvenue en France.
    I hope the quality of the wine matches your expectations. Where to next?

      Quite satisfied, thank you. For someone with no sense of smell or taste, it’s surprising how much I enjoy wine. Maybe I just like the colors?

      Next up, two nights in Antibes and then two more in Sainte Maxime. We’re going to work our way along the coast to Cassis and then see what the weather is doing. If it’s fair we’d like to go inland toward Aix, but otherwise we’ll just pass through Marseilles.

      So obviously we didn’t make it to Acqui Terme and your friend’s B&B. Next time, for sure!

    What a wonderful bike path – I love the museum in the tunnel. Gorgeous photos as always, too.
