Imagine your long-lost nephew, who has grown up in France working with various family-owned cheese and wine makers, speaks great English but is French to his marrow (including his wonderful French sense of humor), takes you along to visit a few of his friends. That is how it felt during this fabulous day with JB. The cheese-making establishment we visited first was in full swing, women literally up to their elbows distributing the curd into the molds, the owners bustling about while JB - treated as one of the family - shows us the various steps in the process, cutting off chunks of unbelievably great cheese of various ages for us to taste. And we hadn't even gotten to the wines yet! Each winery clearly knew JB very well, welcomed him and us to see what was happening during this busy time of year, and with JB begged for us to understand IT'S ALL ABOUT THE SOIL, THE LAND, THE micro-CLIMATEs and oh, yes, there are the grapes. This is not the tour to take if you want to see the slick, high-priced, famous vineyards - but you can do that on your own. With JB you get a well-organized, very knowledgeable, personal guide who gives you his undivided attention for the entire day, generously sharing his local knowledge, local colleagues and passion for the wine, cheese and products of the land. Enough said? Enjoy!
