FIELD TRIP

A FRENCH ACCENT
      It was a lovely spring day and the lure of the Paso Robles  wine region was irresistible. 
     As your surrogates a group of us immersed in the French connection of Tablas Creek.
   A purveyor of Rhone varietals, Tablas Creek has a long relationship with the Perrin family of Chateau Beaucastle in Provence'. There is a French accent here.






    A walk in a vineyard and a picnic accompanied with content from one of these is a cure for election fatigue. And it is a fine way to spend an afternoon with friends. 
    Cheers!

    See you down the trail.

    1. No, but it is enjoyable. Our guide, Evelyne, is from Paris so she was delightful to hear.

  2. I think what our friend Catalyst is saying is the he "wants to hold the baby and isn't interested in the details of the conception."

  4. Great pictures. I read somewhere that shortly after the year 1900 a blight destroyed most of France's wine industry and the French replaced the vines with ones from California. If true, the French wouldn't want this fact advertised.

    1. I think some of the stock also was sent from New York.
