My husband made me bike to town (town being a loose term!) to have my coffee this morning.

Who goes in town on a heat wave day?

Us

Month of August plus scorching heat make for a peaceful, not too busy downtown Grenoble!!!

Walnut trees and corn fields. This aerial view summarize pretty much what we are surrounded by.

We are not the capital of walnuts for nothing!!

I spent so many summer on those ground.

It wasn’t a golf course at the time, just our playground with a lake in the middle and the Alps mountains (Vercors Chain) as a background. It belonged to the family of one of my best friend and building tree house, learning to drive motocycles and just plain quality time with friends was all we cared for.

The wines produce include Hermitage AOC and Crozes-Hermitage AOC, Cornas AOC.

For the American audience (since you know your wine by cépage and not region!). The red wines are Syrah, and the whites Marsanne and/or Roussanne

View from the top.

The light was amazing and I love clouds in pictures.

On my way to the top of the hills…I was deep in the middle of the vineyard.

While I was at it (and already sampled a lot) I went all in and had Lunch with a sprinkling of chocolate on everything. It was delicious!!

It was an interesting visit, very interactive where I learned a lot (and sample a LOT!)
