Wine in the Gard

We couldn't have been happier with the weather by the time we reached St. Hippolyte-du-Fort. From 1 degree Centigrade on the mountaintop to a balmy 24 degrees here in the Gard, the weather definitely improved!  This cave was Maggie and Bill's reason for the trip. They stocked up on the local Lirac AOC wine here...

You can bring your own container (or buy one at the cave) for the vrac, which is an old village way of buying wine directly from the wine barrel in bulk. You can buy boxed wine and bottles as well. Maggie and Bill bought a little of everything.

Wine on board, we drove across the street and checked into our lodgings...the Auberge Cigaloise. Quiet, friendly, great food....good value for the money. And I can't complain about the view from my window either!
