The drum band was amazing.

So much enthusiasm.

  1. We once (about ten years ago) had some very nice St Sornin rose wine. I wonder whether it is the same place?
    Interesting art work.

    1. Yes Gaynor it will be the same place. The cave is just down the road from the fete and they had a stand there as well. See my blog http://lifeincharente.blogspot.fr/2010/12/wines-of-charente-cave-de-saint-sornin.html There is also a great little restaurant there as as well, a Les Routiier that does brilliant food very cheap. When you visit we will have to take you there. Diane xx
