Just a quick note as I am packing up to leave Châteauneuf-du-Pape, heading for a lunch in Marseille and then back to Mougins in Provence. I just found out that I figure somewhat prominently in a video released by FurmintUSA, the group spearheading the effort to familiarize Americans with the Hungarian grape.

I come off as a bit goofy (at least in my opinion), but it is a fun video. Let me know what you think:


About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

  6. I see a lot of wine aficionados tasting, but not one wine aficionado spitting! The true sign of a good drop.
