Tournus, Seguret and Domaine de Mourchon

by Robert Moffat August. 03, 2015 1910 views

Séguret is located in the northern part of the Vaucluse, north of the Dentelles de Montmirail and west of Mont Ventoux. The village lies at the foot of a hill topped by the ruins of its feudal chateau. It is one of the “most beautiful villages in France”, and it is very nice!
Next to it is the Domaine de Mourchon which was created by the McKinlay family in 1998. Set in a secluded valley between Séguret and Mont Ventoux, the vineyard had some twenty hectares of mature vines. The winery was constructed and completed in 2000 - it is a simply amazing place to sing in! And visitors chez Robert may just get a glass of Mourchon wine as we brought a couple of cases back with us!

Tournus

The River Saône - which I love.

a floating hotel - for want of a better description - it cruises along the river

The absolutely wonderful hotel restaurant where we stayed

This is Seguret!

Now we are at Mourchon - resting after a rehearsal

obviously I did not take this one or the other ones of the choir!
