The Prize Winner

Last December l entered this picture in a photo competition held by Chateau de Léognan during the annual Portes Ouvertes (Open Doors) Weekend hosted by over fifty of the most prestigious wine Chateaux and Domaines in the southern vineyards of Bordeaux. The wine is collectively known by the appellation ‘Pessac-Leognan’ and is, in my opinion, some of the finest wine produced in France.


And here are a couple of pictures l took yesterday morning of Chateau de Léognan, where we had spent the night as guests of the owners Philippe and Chantal Miecaze. We also enjoyed a fantastic meal in the splendid ‘La Manege’ restaurant which sits in the grounds of the Chateau and was a perfect way to spend our 46th anniversary.
