Cadillac and Sauternes


The farmers' market in Cadillac was like no other. It was a beautiful presentation of meats, fruits, vegetable, flowers, clothing and jewelry. One could even buy a live chicken for producing eggs or for slaughtering. 

After the chilly morning, the afternoon tour to Sauternes was perfectly sunny and warm. We tasted some fine sweet wine and toured the historic castle of Roquetaillade. 

The natural defensive site was particularly interesting due to the contributions of the famed French architect and theorist, Viollet-le-Duc.
