Just one photo today. That's the wine village Sancerre in the distance, on a hilltop. Sancerre is what is called un village perché — a "perched" village. The Sancerre area is one of France's most beautiful wine regions. The vineyards grow on steep hillsides. I had driven some distance out on a dirt road at the crest of a ridge to take some photos.
Sancerre's white wines are made with Sauvignon Blanc grapes and are dry and grassy-tasting. Sancerre's light-bodied, dry reds and rosé are made with Pinot Noir grapes. I was there last October with Walt and again in early June with CHM, just enjoying the scenery. I was lucky to have great weather both times.
