From St Dizant du Gua to my garage

From St Dizant du Gua in the Auvergne region of France to my garage is quite a journey. It was while I was tidying up my garage (an on-going process) that I came across this mixed case of Pineau. It has been lying hidden in my garage for so may years I had forgotten it’s existence.

Many years ago while driving through France on holiday we came across the utterly charming little Chateau de Beaulon. The main attraction for me were the grounds and the Blue Fountains but we were met by the owner and invited to sample the produce – well what can you say. Obviously I was impressed since I came away with a case including tasting notes.

Now after lying so long in the ever changing temperatures of a garage including two of the coldest ever winters and situated close to the central heating boiler I imagined an investment gone wrong. Nope – the wine is as good as the day I bought it.

If you are ever in this region I heartily recommend a stop. If you want to know more follow this link. http://www.chateau-de-beaulon.com/site/une_tradition/index.php?l=en

A nice little commission

A few weeks ago I took a couple of photographs of wine bottles as part of an on going series. When published on my blog ( an old one) the owner of the Domaine where the wine was produced asked me to photograph his 2011 range as he had new labels and brand to roll out. This was for the retail store on the website. What a nice job – Thank you Charles.

The interesting thing is the Domaine is in the glorious South of France and I am in the slightly damper and overcast Northern Ireland. What you can do with a courier company and broadband.

The first photograph below is what started the whole thing off and below is a couple of photographs of the new product photographs as commissioned.

And the website – it’s www.sainterose.com
