Wine and chateaux "who knew?

Our friend who resides in the Loire Valley asked how we would like to spend our day as tourists in the LV? Instantly, I thought of two of my favorite things: Loire Valley wine and lady like châteaux where I could imagine Catherine de Medici and Diane de Poiter having some sort of yelling match in the corridors over Francois the 1st. We walked around the very feminine Chateau du Chaumont de Loire then we tasted the very mineral white wine Vouvray. I like mine dry but even the sweet stuff was delicious. Off to the south of France now. Au revoir..
