Bref reportage sur 2014 Vignes, Vins et Randos en Anjou

Some of the vineyards of Chaume
(all rando photos by Michel Mergot)
Delighted to have this brief reportage from one of our occasional correspondents – Michel Mergot – on the 2014 edition of Vignes, Vins et Randos. Michel spent the weekend in Anjou – going on the Chaume randonée on the Saturday and the Brissac l'Aubance on the Sunday:

'Samedi 6 septembre, VVR à Chaume et dimanche 7 à Brissac-Aubance.
Superbes randonnées et dégustations.
J'ai ramené quelques bouteilles.'
A good turnout for Chaume

Chaume: good to see a crop of wild flowers by the vines

I'm delighted that Michel will be joining me for part of my Loire ride. He will be riding with me for part of the étape from Beaugency to Bourgueil on Monday 22nd September.
