All the fun of the fair on a sunny Saturday in Chinon
The annual vintage market continued in Chinon this sunny afternoon.
Highlight was an old fashioned threshing. Thirsty work and, for a short spell, we withdrew from the streets to visit the Caves Painctes of Chinon, the headquarters of the Confrerie de Bons Entonneurs Rabelaisiens. Didn’t quite make the cut for membership. You have to drink a glass of wine. What’s the problem, you say. The problem is the glass takes a whole bottle and you must finish it without a pause!
