Chris & Tania Boldly going etc etc

September 12, 2013

I'm sure it was much easier for Captain Kirk. Tania and I have given ourselves 5 days to unearth some new wines from Marcillac, Cahors and Gaillac , negotiate some deals and come back with sufficient stock to satisfy our thirsty tasters at next Wednesday's tasting.

To this end, we left work at 5 yesterday afternoon for ‎ the drive down to Portsmouth, caught the overnight crossing and were on the road at 7.00 this morning for the nine and a half hour drive down to Marcillac where we are now encamped. (I kid you not, look at the pictures).

Long day of driving and tasting tomorrow- I hope to report back with news of warp factor intensity.
