Not a very restful sleep for 'becca, We arose ~7:30, packed up, had
breakfast, checked out, and I hit the pharmacie before our group got on
First stop: Georges Vernay, where we were met by son-in-law, Paul. Note: the slopes the vines grow on have to be seen to be believed! I have never seen such steep slopes being cultivated! They make AMV's hillsides look flat! Paul provided a very informative talk on Mr. Vernay and Condrieu.
At 11:51 we arrived at the property of Y. Cuilleron. He gave us a nice tour of his fairly small space, then tasted us through a few wines.
Then, it was off to lunch in Ampuis at Bistrot à Vin de Serine, where we joined by Y. Gangloff. Dinner was interesting. The food had sort of an Italian style to it. Various wines were served as well.
It was Way Hot in the restaurant, and we couldn't wait to get back into some real AC.
