One of our trips to local Vineyards organized by Hugh for our trip. All were enjoyable and educational, with the added bonus of purchase at the end!
Seems like a natural environment for a group of 7's - a sun kissed vineyard in Southern France.
The wine from Chateau Bel Air, the vineyard shown above.
Doesn't our car look great in this light.
Ok - so its a cliche shot, but it works. Angus and Paul!
The colours on this trip were beautiful - from the lush greens of the vines to the blue sky (most of the time!)
At Chateau Vincent we were treated with a vineyard walk, where we learnt about the agricultural aspects of wine making, before returning to the buildings for a taste of the product.
The blat home. Initially we all left together, then Paul and I peeled off for a detour to the north coast. Here we see Susie and Hugh with what looks like a crate of wine on the back!
Mad Chris did the whole trip with aeroscreens - respect!
Paul and I desperately trying to keep up with Mike and Tam, who took this picture. I had waved to Tam to slow down so we could take a picture - she missunderstood and took off at a highly illegal pace!!
Where is everyone?
I slight running problem was fixed by Mike 'en route' - here he can be seen checking the plugs. Of course if he had a k-series....
Home again. Paul and I return to Portsmouth to a glorious sunset. Its always nice to return to the UK to clear blue skies - if unusual!
