New route to Bordeaux

Exciting week for all aboard the Rosa this week, after cruising between Montauban & Agen this week we move the other side of Agen to cruise to St Emilion, one of France’s premier wine producing area.

As wel as a visit to St Emilion vineyards there are visits to an artisan fromargerie, Marmande, famous for tomatoes, to the market & GAEC du Rounagle to Armagnac distillery.

We also pass through Bazas famous for the amazing rare breed Bazas beef & Buzet a small but well known wine appellation that produces wine similar to Bordeaux Medoc.

From a chefs point of view it gets even benter because over the next few weeks we have coming into season wild mushrooms including Ceps, Truffles, Walnuts & Chestnuts all found in abundance in the area.
