I sampled wine direct from the barrel for the first time in Autumn 1997 – in the village of Chardonnay – and even bought some recently bottled 1996s for my Christmas lunch, but for the next three years I managed to average only about 3 visits every 2 years. After moving to Switzerland for my job in 2000, I was able to travel to Burgundy much more often as it was just 2h40 away in the car – if I was good – more like 2h30 if I was bad! I eventually set up this website in 2002 – it was a hobby, to expand on some of the contributions I made to various online forums and to write the stories that I would have loved to read but couldn’t find, either in print or online.
