Today, Sunday, we head eastward to Les Arcs sur Argens, a charming medieval town that is the location of the Maison des Vins for the Cotes de Provence AOC. We had a comprehensive tutored tasting by their sommelier followed by lunch, which some said was the best lunch so far on the tour. (but they say that after every meal!)

We then traveled a short distance to Chateau Saint Roseline. My wife Roz thought we were going to her namesake. This is a privately owned medieval abbey and winery. After a tour and tasting, we then went to the chapel and were stunned to see the mummified remains of Saint Roseline and a huge wall mosaic by Chagall. It was worth the day trip just to see this Chagall and everyone took their photo standing in front.
