Some exciting news for WineinProvence this past week: we were approached to be on TV!

The Travel Channel commissioned Around The World Productions to shoot an episode based around activities that tourists can do in 5 French Riviera towns…Aix en Provence, Cannes, St Tropez, Monacco, and Nice.

They wanted to film a barrel tasting, so I took the film crew (3 guys who flew over from both the East and West coasts of the US) to Chateau Beaupre, just 15 minutes outside of the city center of Aix. My husband came along and took some pictures of them filming- not the best pictures, but better than nothing =) We also walked through the vineyards and picked some grapes, as it is harvest season in France right now. Since Brian was out of the country it was just me talking, leading the tasting, etc.

The host was Alex Boylan who has been on a few reality TV shows. He was the winner of Amazing Race 2, and had a weekly series on CBS’s The Early Show.

They said the episode will be airing this December on the Travel channel in the US. They will give us a link (hopefully before then) so we can see it. We will be sure and post the link as soon as editing is finished!
