Wine and Cheese Night with Laurent

Bon Jour,

One of our favorite nights was when Laurent, our patient and kind sommelier came to visit us at the Chateau for some education on French wines and cheeses. I'm not sure if he has known so many women that take sooooo many photos! I hope we didn't embarrass him too much!

We began with a little champagne as he set up. Once we were set up outside on the deck, the bread was passed out.

Laurent had pairings of not only wine and cheese, but also suggestions of which breads to try with each cheese,

The wines all were wonderful, here are a couple we tried,

And the cheeses were all so fresh tasting,

It was such a treat to try all these unique cheeses!

Our dinner luckily was light after this event! We had our calcium for the day that is for sure!!



  1. LOL! That is hilarious! All of you gals probably blinded the poor guy with flashes taking pics. He has to watch out for blogging gals! We have to have the best picture!! Looks like a crazy awesome time!

  2. Rach,

    What a fabulous trip! Thank you so much for sharing your photos and letting all of us experience the trip through your eyes. Next time…count me in! Wish I could have spent more time getting to know you at the Petticoat & Parasols event. I hope our paths cross again before too long.

    Love ya,
