Where in the wine world are we? Winter edition


Where was I when I took this picture? Although I blurred the name in the sign with photoshop, it seems that the sign itself had some damage done to it in the real world. Must be a rough neighborhood. (Hint?)

No prizes this time, just respect and admiration.

UPDATE 2/14: Well, M nailed it right from the get go. It is, in fact, the plateau of Pomerol, covered by a rare snow! The “rough neighborhood” comment proved to be a red herring (gotcha!) since this is just down the road from Petrus, routinely the most expensive wine from Bordeaux.

  1. Looks like Pomerol to moi.

  2. Bordeaux certainly. Medoc possibly. St Julien?

  3. Looks like Cote d’Or, probably south of Clos de Vougeot.

  4. Riquewihr, Alsace.

  5. I’d have to go with Graves/Pessac-Leognan. One of the only places in France where I remember the vineyards being so flat.

  6. Loire Valley just outside of one of major towns like Tours? The rough neighborhood comment is throwing me a little.

  7. Hmm..rough neighborhood.

    I’m gonna have to go with SW France, Languedoc perhaps.

  8. Update added! The photo is, in fact, from Pomerol, Bordeaux, France.
