Weekend in Montpellier Deux!

I was invited by Isabelle from the ART association to visit her brothers winery in Pinet, Domaine de Petit Roubie. When people know you are interested in wine, they love to show and tell. Pinet is very close to Montpellier and the Domaine ships all over the world including America. Look for their Green Planet label in a Wine Store near you.
Everyone thinks I am some kind of wine genius, but I really am just trying to learn as much as I can while I am here. I have learned a few techniques along the way though, and I was instructed to share this knowledge with my traveling buddies, Alena and Elisa. Sniff, swirl, sniff, taste. It's that easy.......oh yeah, and enjoy!
A second winery visit was to the Chateau de Flaugergues was in order for Saturday after a long day exploring the city with Elisa and Alena. We got a tour of the garden, the House, and of course a tasting of their fine wines. White, Rose, and Red.
Remember my challenge of 100 wines and 50 cheeses in the month of June. At this rate, I think I am going to have to double that total to give myself a challenge :)
