A day in Tournon-sur-Rhône. We went on a walking tour to the vineyards of Tain L’Hermitage.
They often trim the vines close to the ground where it’s warmer.
In other areas they train the vines up individual posts instead of a trellis.
As you can see, the hill is quite steep.
Very rocky soil.
…and a stop at the chocolate factory! Valrhona, it’s called. Which we unknowingly will use later in our journey in Paris to make chocolate lava cakes in our cooking class.
