This blog started three years ago when I rode my Solex motorbike from Chablis near Paris to Sablet in Provence. Forty days, eighty winemaker visits, a thousand wines tasted...


It then migrated to Terre de Vins for a couple of years while I followed the fascinating world of French wine.


It's now gone independent and is here.


Regular news from the Ouveze valley in Provence: Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Beaumes de Venise, Sablet, Rasteau, Cairanne, Seguret and other villages making the best value for money wines anywhere.

What's this blog, then?

This is my new experimental blog. My full blog is still at terredevins. This independent blog will cover all of my Solex travels in the vineyards and will showcase the vignerons and wines of northern provence around Sablet. 

I moved to France ten years ago and started this blog as I rode my 1966-model Solex motorbike from Chablis to Sablet in May and June 2009. As a journalist with L’Amateur de Bordeaux, I have a professional obligation to taste as much as I can, and this blog covers all of my wine-based travel, whether through the heartland of South France or Hong Kong and Australia. I am planning, as the French would say, to “recidive” soon with a trip along the Loire.
