WineRelease.com's May 15, 2016 Monthly Newsletter.

Greetings from WineRelease.com, now 2,135 winery listings strong.

Back from France and my apologies for the tardiness of this newsleter. We all had a great time in Paris and Bonnieux (South of France). We had our fill of Rose which is the local wine. We had two days of wine tastings in and around Châteauneuf-du-Pape.



Our first tour was at Notre Dame de Cousignac where Raphael Pommier explains his wines while we are in a converted set of tanks, including Syrah tartrates on the wall.


He then took us down a long set of stairs...


To where he is experimenting with wine storage in a deep cave where we tasted his wines.


And then had a wonderful picnic outside.


We stopped by for a quick tasting and selfie at Chateau La Nerthe.


And we also toured Château de Beaucastel where big tanks are aplenty.


They have a deep vertical of vintages. Here is Dave trying to find his birth year.


And we had an early morning tasting at Clos des Papes.


And after lunch we had a fun tasting at Clos de L'Oratoire.

And now, onto the wines...
