How Low Can You Go?

Europe is full of wonderful things...

Amazing architecture....


 Roof lines that make you want to climb out the nearest window...


and scenery beyond compare...


But one of the things we are having the most fun with is how cheap of a bottle of wine can you find?
I stumbled out of the Marche the other night with a darn fine one for 2.29 Euro and today we discovered  one for 1.35...

We didn't buy it as it wasn't from the Bourgogne and we are trying to buy local after all (the 100 mile diet would be an absolute cinch here!).

But I think tomorrow, just for posterity, I'll slip back to the Marche and buy myself a bottle of the cheap stuff - it's a comforting fact here in France that cheap does not always connote awful, and I'm trying to see just how low a girl can go in this country!

Hi Jillayne,

We found the exact same thing, wonderful bottles of champagne and wine for so cheap. I agree Europe is full of wonderful things.
Enjoy your vacation.

So cheap, but no binge drinking drunks like in the UK. So glad you are having a lovely time.
