George’s Postcard Note: Having tasted some of its white wine at dinner at ‘our’ chateau B&B the evening before, we walked down the road to taste where it came from. We found ourselves at a simple farm house among the vineyards, with seemingly no one at home. After knocking I walked to the back and found a person. He was a worker there and familiar with the entire process from growing to harvesting to distilling the grapes. After tasting several, we bought one of their sauternes to share on the canal boat.
