Wine Trips

Moulin-a-Vent on the N7

Moulin-a-Vent on the N7

The circumstances were not ideal. I drank this magnificent Moulin a Vent from a paper cup in a cheap but friendly motel.

First steps in the Maconnais

Macon is known for its dry white wines but also has some interesting reds made from the Gamay grape that dominates the wines of nearby Beaujolais

Arriving in Macon
