Open door weekend

73 châteaux from the Saint Emilion appellation and its Satellites opened their doors last Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was for us very calm with regular visitors, Sunday morning was also very calm, but we had a lot of people in the afternoon: with 3 of us, we had a hard time to please all our visitors, friends, neighbors, curious and amateurs, some from Taiwan, others from Japan, Denmark, well, many people (even one of our bankers, and our accountant!)
I believed that we did our job well, we poured many wines and sold a few cases in our area, with Valandraud, Pressac, Faugère, Mangot and Fombrauge and in Saint Emilion in Clos Badon, there were less people as visitors were driving in a pre-arranged route.
We had Miss Vicky at our house: a breath of fresh air and such energy; we had nice weather and the cherries are ripe in the trees.
