This week's wine comes from a famous mountain in France and one that we have visited several times, mostly for it*s connection to the Tour de France, but also to sample the great food and good wine from here.
Probably our most fun time visiting Mont Ventoux was our trip to the little village Brantes at the bottom of the mountain. Here we spent a day foraging and cooking with the women of the town.
Our choice of wine for this week comes from the same area. Bonpas Ventoux Grande Reserve is made from 20% Syrah and 80% Grenache and is a lovely wine at a fantastic price.
