Bread, cheese and wine....

What more can you ask for?
Healthy fresh bread...
Interesting cheese...
Excellent wine!

One evening we had the privilege to be educated by an expert on the
local bread, cheese and wine.
We started with an aperitif. Sparkling wine and Violette liqueur.
The Violette liqueur gave the wine a blueish colour and it tasted wonderful!
Then came the white wine and some goats cheese, say no more!
Then another white wine and a more -edible- cheese.

We sat on the veranda talking and listing to our host, Lizzie,
as she translated everything.
As the sun went down it was time
for the red wine and two different cheeses.
Then came the "bread to share" -  which is baked in
such a way that you can easily tear off a piece.

We ended up going to bed quite late, but it was a wonderful experience.


  1. I'm so glad you posted this! I can't wait to look at all your posts on the trip. I have been meaning to blog but am afraid - actually I know I won't do this fabulous trip justice. Wish we were all back there in Auty.

  2. wasn't this TOO much fun!?!?
