NOTE THE DATE CHANGE TO 19-23 OCT
So a couple of us are planning to go stay in Saint-Emilion in the Bordeaux region for a long weekend.
At the moment, other than the dates (you may need to take Mon 21, Tue 22, and Wed 23 off work) and the location, we have no other details because they'll depend on numbers.
But since the plan is simple (i.e. turn up and wander around wineries and restaurants, eat amazing food, get drunk on great wine, and enjoy the scenery of the French countryside) there doesn't need to be much else.
