After the vineyard we went to see Saint Emilion which is a very cute old town. We bought the town speciality almond macorons filled with chocolate paste. Very tasty! Even better was the canelés! But I guess you can buy those everywhere in France, and I will.
Our guide is explaining that there are only women working on the vineyard.
Everybody are tasting the grapes and looking at the leaves to see what kind of wine they make here.
The huge barrels used for fermentation.
This is how it looks like when you are sitting inside an empty barrel tinted by red grape juice.
Here they let the wine age to taste well.
Inside this secret chamber they keep the really old wines.
We get told how to taste wine in a professional way.
I took some extra grapes on my way out.
One of the many macaron factories.
One of the many wine shops.
The small town have many steep alleys.

Another steep alley.
Yet another steep alley. Getting boored?
Many cute corners to find.
People was panting hard after climbing the steep and narrow roads.
At the top I found this baby vineyard. There are 800 in the region around the town.

Porte de la Cadène
I was very tempted to buy myself a merlot plant to take home. But I am not sure the Swedish customs would approve.
On the road at the top I found this little crab friend. There is no ocean in sight so I guess he escaped from a restaurant and to become someone's food. I guess he will not survive much longer poor fellow.
