Reference to the Robert Redford movie in Montana, the Charente river really runs through the AOC cognac vineyards from east to west. A quiet river which plays with landscape and flows into Atlantic sea just face to the famous “Fort Boyard”. Hop on board, imminent departure.
“Enoteca”, bistrot, wine shop and concept store, the San Pietro Cafè associates gastronomy, fashion and lifestyle. An arty place, to have a lovely evening in Milan. We got a lot of chance this time to be welcomed by Andrea, the passionate sommelier of the place, who spent time with us, a very nice host indeed.
It’s quite unusual in Cognac region to have such low températures withing the day : -7°C or -9°C. I presume that the scandinavian and canadian friends of the blog will just smile and think that it’s out of mind to say it’s cold, but for us, it is ! A white coat on the roofs and landscapes till noon, is quite exceptionnal. To be trendy, I putted on my white confortable coat.
Since this first days or this new year, winter is there in cognac region, with its white mornings, frozen fields and vineyards, frozen grass glittering in sun like today, in short, a “temps de saison” as we say in french. And an opportunity to take photos and share them.
