My son Philippe is in France for a few weeks and I was lucky enough to spend last weekend with him. We met in Tours where Philippe had spent a year as an exchange professor.

We then traveled to Bourgueil, a wine region in the Loire Valley. Philippe is on a research mission studying "natural" and biodynamic wine making practices. His research includes visits to vineyards, interviews with wine makers, and wine tasting fairs. On Saturday afternoon we visited The Domaine de la Chevalerie - a family owned vineyard for the last 400 years.
