Bandol

sunny 25 °C

First stop after getting our rental car was Bandol for wine tasting. We had one winery in mind, Domaine Tempier.  When we got there they only had one wine to taste. Two weeks earlier they had sold out of their other wine.  I think she felt bad for us and provided a map with a few other wineries. One of the wineries she recommended was on the plans to go to on Wednesday. The other one, Tour du Bon, we did not have plans for so we headed off to check them out. When we arrived, we were not sure if we were in the right place.  After looking around for a brief moment, a woman appeared. We told her we were sent by Tempier. As she was busy, she went out of her way to find someone to help us. We ended with two individuals. One who spoke spotty English and had been at the winery one week. The other didn't speak any English and had been at the winery since 2008. We tasted 6 different wines. One rose, one blanc and four reds, one of which was aging in a clay pot. Interesting!  After leaving the winery, we headed to our hotel, Miramar Beach and Spa in Theoule sur Mer.  We checked in and then got ready for dinner at a sister restaurant, L'OrBleu. Had a fabulous dinner!
