Our garden-loving members also happen to love wine (is that why we live in Bordeaux?). May’s ICB « Flower Power » outing made the best of both worlds with a morning visit to the Chai au Quai in Castillon la Bataille for a bit of fascinating history, a tour of the beautifully renovated building and… a wine tasting! After lunch on the banks of the Dordogne River, it was garden time at Château Franc la Fleur in St. Magne de Castillon: lovely well-established gardens and organic grape vines. Can you guess? Well, yes: we were treated to another wine tasting! Great friends and good times come first with the ICB!
