Bordeaux wine district

Back in Sweden again Saturday night - Peter rushed off in a taxi to his family (and to check his bottles).
I hurried back to Värmdö to eat and drink French wine and cheese with my loved ones.
Peter reports that all bottles were in good shape and he now has to build a wine cellar to keep them that way..

Peter has become mr linkedin, a really boring companion.
Luckily his battery gave up after a while!

On our way to Merignac airport we passed by this village
with the same name as my husbands eldest daughter.

We spent the afternoon shopping at the market in Blaye,
cheese, asparagus...

Peter needs all the help he can get
to pack the bottles for the flight back to Sweden...

The rooms full of oakbarrels are quite impressive!

The lady of the castle and Peter inspect the vineyards.

Early next morning we went to pick up Peters birhdaypresent,
24 bottles of wine at Chateau Monconseil Gazin.

In the medieval citadel, we checked into a hotel
with a great view of the Gironde.
The cockroaches in the room were not so nice, though...

We went to the village of Blaye and looked at the citadelle.

After concluding our work in Paris,
Peter and I hopped on the TGV to Bordeaux.
We rented a car and drove north into the amazing wine district.
