It has only been seven years in the planning, but Katie and I are finally heading on our long awaited Euroeamn holiday this week. We'll arrive in Paris, drive east to Alsace, South through Burgundy and the Rhone to Provence, back West to the Languedoc, finally jumping on a train to finish in Barcelona.
Thank you to everyone for your useful suggestions of places to go and things to see. Rest assured, we will do our best to sample as many local delicate pastries, rich cheeses, and maybe ... just maybe... perhaps one or two wines to taste.
As a result, we'll be taking a breather on our 'Exploration Series' tasting events through October, and kicking off again in November. We're aiming to host events featuring wines of Austria, and also French Champagne once we're back. We'll try to do a few blogs while we're "on the road" - and will hopefully remember to take the camera!
