Welcome to La Madelene : Rhone Wine Holidays

Mid-summer soiree at La Madelene

Last night La Madelene hosted a musical soiree to celebrate mid-summer and share some of our favourite wines with friends. About 50 guests joined us in the garden to hear Domingo, Julien and their base player play south american rythms and bossa nova; canapes etc prepared by Jude, friend Tonita and guest professional chef Nick, were hoovered up by the crowd in record time; guests were able to take part in a degustation of 11 wines …for the record: Gigondas and Sablet blanc from Domaine les Gouberts, Muscat sec and Esprit Libre vendange tardive vin doux from Bernadines, red and white CN du P from Nalys, red Beaumes des Venise from Redortier, Tavel rose and white Lirac from Maby, Rose from Domaine Mourchon, and Clos de Caveau’s red Vacqueyras. Around midnight when the musicians were enjoying a well earned glass or two of Nalys attention  turned to the roc-ola juke box and next thing we knew it was nearly 2am!…..The guys setting up underneath the chestnut tree soiree2.JPGsoiree3.JPGHeat is on in the kitchen….Manning the degustation bar on the decking.. soiree.JPG Guests getting into the swing… soiree4.JPG
