THIS MONTH'S DESTINATON: Aube en Champagne
Isis Basnayaka discovers that sampling the liquid gold is only the start of the adventure!
Medieval Troyes, fromagerie de Chaource, private champagne houses, half-timbered houses, extreme sports and great food are just some of the many qualities on offer at Aube en Champagne. I was excited to sample and explore the making one of the world's most prestigious drinks, and eager to try some great regional food. I was particularly intrigued to try the Rosé des Riceys; especially as only true connoisseurs are aware of its existence and very few have tasted it.
