Now there's a hook!While I was out with my grandma and mom during our stay in Florida, they decided a bottle of French wine was necessary to celebrate my upcoming AFS experience. After being let down by Sams Club's limited supply of French wine, (and by limited I mean none) we stopped by a liquor store stacked floor to ceiling with several options of wines grown on the Rhone river, where I'll be living!
To give you a better idea, I'm going to Tournon-sur-Rhone, and on the opposite side of the river is the commune, Train-l'Hermitage.
Which is "a notable wine producing commune" so naturally, we began a search for wines from this area. In the end we bought one that
- I could barely bring myself to swallow.
- one google search later, revealed that it was actually grown no where near Tournon.
Here's a picture of me with Cote-de-Rhone wine prior to tasting, hence the smile.
