Harpers Beaujolais Trip. Day 1 in brief.

So day one has finished on our mini tour of Beaujolais. Long day but worth it.
Having left London first thing this morning, 30/1/12, we arrived at Lyon around 10.20, France time.
Accompanied by:
Laura Heywood, Harpers Magazine.
Alex Layton, Westbury Communication, PR Agency to Inter Beaujolais.
Matthew Scowen, Assistant Buyer, Hennings Wine Merchants.
Celia Buridant, Sipp London Wine Merchant.
Meirion Williams, Store Manager, Yapp Brothers.
Ed Perfect, Grape & Grain.
We began the day with a quick bite at Calad’in Comptoir before heading off to the first of two tastings.
Our locations were at Chateau de Montmelas and Chateau de Cercy. In all we sampled 18 wines. Full accounts will be given on my return.
In the meantime it’s feet up, watch Kill Bill in French and have a well earned snooze. 4 more wineries to attack tomorrow.

      It’s colder than London. Knew that before I left.
      Woke and the whole region had been covered in snow. Got some great pictures just can’t upload them yet. Wifi network a bit slow.
      3 more wineries tomorrow before home in the evening.
