At the Clos Roussely winery on Sunday morning.
Both of those wines are different from what we get here in our Touraine region. That's why I like what Vincent Roussely does: bringing in vintners from other regions once a year. He also goes to their regions to share local Touraine wines with people who might otherwise not have access to them. It's a cool thing, kind of a wine exchange program. This is my third year going, and I hope it continues.
I got there when they opened at 10 am. I think I was the first customer. I didn't see any others. The producers were all standing around in the building chatting with each other. I felt conspicuous. I tasted a few wines, but I noticed that one of the producers was also sipping, so I wasn't alone. Then I bought my bottles and made my way home. As you can see in the photo, Sunday was a beautiful day. The people that were planning to have lunch at the winery (they have a nice picnic area and serve lunch during this open house weekend) got lucky.
