Today we cruised into the famous Sancerre wine district known for some of the finest wines in the world.
A quaint little town that no less than 15 years ago was struggling to sell wine for more than €6 a bottle, but now with the help of the people internet and booming global trade sells bottles over €60.
We enjoyed a pleasant walk up the hill from the canal to the village of Sancerre. The children taking turns to ride on their Nanu’s scooter.
I was expecting to drink premium wine on a sunny afternoon listening to a classical string quartet. Instead we were treated to a more original view of this premium wine region. The local people were similar to local people of rural towns around the world and were very friendly however put Tasmanian bogans to shame withe their bespoke Sancerre high street burnouts and motorbike “blockies”.
A very unique and unexpected experience in the worlds second best wine region #Richmond_Tasmania_1st! Now back to Sunday island for some real Sancerre Red!
Looks brilliant Richard are you going anywhere near Avignon or Montpelier ,
