Sancerre

By | August 24, 2006


The town of Sancerre is perched high above the Loire, a fact you get to fully understand when you’ve cycled up the hairpin bends to it in the driving rain.

My beer-drinking cycling buddy found it a little odd that I felt the need to stop and take pictures of the vines, soils and fruit, but I’m sure you’ll appreciate them.

I did find it amusing that Sancerre is twinned with Eccleshall in Staffordshire. An unlikely choice, and unfortunately I don’t have any pictures of Eccleshall, but if you know why the two towns are twinned, do let me know.

    Appreciated! Very nice photo, looks like you are riding along some very nice country side and drinking some wonderful wines.

    Happy Sipping!
