... wine in a cask! We stopped immediately and even without any breakfast in our stomachs we had a tasting! A little light headed and only 10 minutes later we wandered back to the car with a 5 litre cask of their best wine for only 18 Euros (26 dollars)! Wow, why can't good wine producers do this in Australia too! I also have to mention that this is the place where we both saw one of the other French normalities that we in Australia don't have - wine on tap for bulk purchase! While ...
