A recent thread recommended a wine from Collioure, which got me thinking about a holiday I have planned for this summer. In essence we’ll be staying in and around Collioure for a couple of weeks in August but are taking the opportunity for a bit of a relaxed road trip down from Calais to get to the South of France. Our planned route south down takes us through Champagne, Burgundy and the Rhone, then along the Med coast to Collioure. On the return we plan to head back up the western side of France taking in Bergerac, Bordeaux and the Loire.
Our dates are a little flexible, but if you had one day only in each of those main regions - where would you stop to visit a vineyard or take in lunch etc?
All recommendations welcome, and I hope to report back later in the year!
Thanks in advance
