Wine…..

As we like our wine and we have been lucky enough to try some really lovely wines so far on the trip I thought that you may like to know what they are and have a look and see if you can find them locally. I will update this page with details of the wines that we have tried along the route and a ‘summary’ of our opinion …. Obviously everyones’ taste is different, but if you fancy trying something different it may be worth a look….
