    Most Sauvignon blancs are drinkable. Look out for Entre Deux Mers generic whites from Bordeaux. Excellent value for money.

    White Rioja if you can find it Baron del Rey.

    This is our favourite white from Collioure. Not Sauvignon Blanc, but Grencahe Blanc, Gris with Marsanne, Roussanne, Vermentino. You don't see Collioure wines often in the UK, but try it if you do.

    "Collioure is a tiny appellation within the Roussillon region (also known as French Catalonia) in the southeastern corner of France, close to the border with Spain on the Mediterranean coast around 30 kilometers (20 miles) southwest of Perpignan. It produces powerful dry red and white wines from the most southerly of France's vineyards. The appellation comprises four communes, the one from which it takes its name, plus Cerbère, Port-Vendres and Banyuls.

    Collioure wines are the area's dry table wines, while those labeled Banyuls are the sweet wines produced from exactly the same vineyards. The proportion of grapes that become Collioure or Banyuls wine in any one year depends on the particular characteristics of the vintage."

    Llanerch Vineyard have a nice dry white of their own - and when it’s sunny you can drink it in the garden overlooking the vines. Very pleasant indeed.

    Yeah, with his bare hands. Not poofta hands like the Doctor and @Eat Y'self Fitter.

    Rumour has it that Al hewed out a single block from Southerndown Cliffs and whittled them down into the cottages you see in the photo.

    Tremendous.

    The cafe and flat are now rooms and a cookery school I think

    It’s an awesome place

    I think the owner back then was a Peter Williams, I was told he sold the place on some years back.
