short stories about personalities from france's rich history

Well, 40 years on, and much legal dishwater down the sink, I silence the preacher each morning by cooking the eggs for our guests at Les Deux Chevres in Gevrey Chambertin; and then wander off to a land of medieval monks and 2,000 years of wine making, right on our doorstep. The fantasy generally enhanced by an indulgent glass of Gevrey Chambertin at lunchtime - bien sur! 😀 Welcome to our Blog which contains short stories about Pre Revolutionary France, ancient and famous wine estates, Guides to Burgundy, and much, much more!
