Still no news…Still no news re subscriptions…
But its time to plan my October visit for the harvest, I have no travel sponsorship so have to book my Eurostar early !
In September I drove down and it does not compete with the train except if there are two of you. Catching the train I leave my home around 05.15 and I’m on the 07.01 Eurostar, then a two stop link on the RER in Paris and I’m at Gare de Lyon comfortably in good time. Then I’m in Dijon with time for a coffee at the station cafe before Hertz opens at 13.30. I shall be at work before 14.30. Better than arriving at 17.30 after a 500 mile drive !
Equally the 13.20 TGV from Dijon means I’m home by 19.30 with a little bit of reviewing and editing already done on the train.
Accommodation for pickers at harvest time is scarce and probably basic but still a privilege and you eat well! Part of my aim with this book is to show you the reality of winemaking.
So far 2013 has been a very “real” year !
I’m also lucky that World of Fine Wine have commissioned 6 pages of text and photos for the autumn issue and the following three!
