Staying at a picturesque country home in the middle of the French countryside is fantastic. I'm so used to shopping at stores like Anthropologie in the states, however, that I'm forgetting this is the real thing. It's not a store front or a display. This actually is the romantic setting American retailers are trying to recreate!
We're off to a few more Cognac houses today, then down to Armagnac this evening. More to report then!
