I am hanging in the Chaillot vineyard with Thierry Allemand and Franck Balthazar! Franck shows us his vines, his farming technique, how he is organic and what that actually means to him.. The vines here and the slopes are absolutely amazing, and the Balthazar 'Chaillot' cuvée is worth every penny, if you can find it ;) #Chaillot #Balthazar #Grandcru #Cornas #Sansoufre

So microscopic and insignificant in size. Yet the source of such splendor in the glass and happiness in your face as you drink Nebbiolo and feel the captured sunrays energizing your spirit. Ahhh, Barolo... #nebbiolo #barolo #langhe #piemonte #piedmont #italy #wine #wineregion

We've added two garnacha/grenache/cannonaus to our @WineEmotionUK tasting machine: one from Navarra & one from Sardinia. Compare & contrast!
I'm drinking Cannonau (Grenache) this weekend in Sardinia.
