More Photos from Franck’s Sunday ride

For all you fellow lazy folk out there! Franck sent me some more lovely photos he took on his bike ride with Martial last Sunday.

This is one of the stone cabottes that dot the vineyards around here. They were built a long, long time ago by the winemakers who needed a place to store their tools, not to mention wait out violent thunderstorms. This particular one is in the vineyards between the villages of Villers-la-Faye (where La Maison de la Vieille Vigne is located, and where we live) and Chaux.

Here is the view out over the Corton-Charlemagne – the hillside where some of the best white wines in the world begin. The “Charlemagne” part of the name is because these whites were some of Charlemagne’s favorite wines.

Of course that’s the exquisite village of Pernand-Vergelesses in the foreground. It’s only five minutes away from Villers-la-Faye and Magny-les-Villers so don’t miss going there for a visit (and why not a winetasting?) when you are at one of our village houses.

And here’s the kind of view you would see if you went out biking in the Fall here in Burgundy like my dear husband, rather than watching Scooby-Doo at home like me.
