A walk in the French Riviera: Looking for not the Crème but some Wine [On The Road: Cassis/Bandol]

You are telling me that wine is better than Pepsi? No way wine is better than Pepsi
George Costanza (Seinfeld episode “The Dinner Party”)

We moved east towards Cassis for more spectacular views of Calanques, and some white and rose Cassis wine tasting. Cassis is a must, the city is lovely, you can walk it in a day, enjoy nice food, and have great local wines. 

Cassis Vieux Port
On the food corner, there are plenty options in the Vieux Port. We got to La Vieille Auberge. Nice food with good wine, in a relax place with great view of the port. The goat cheese starter was superb, and then the Dorade Royal was really nice, fresh fish, and perfectly cooked, a touch of anise that was lovely. The cost is around €40pp.

We kept driving east towards Bandol through the route des Cretes, outstanding panoramic views of the coast scenery. Finally in Bandol we did a quick stroll in the port, and in the tourist office we got leaflet with all the vineyards of the region. 

Passing Bandol
We ended in Domaine de Terrebrune for wine tasting. They opened in 1963, the vineyard extends over 30 hectares. We got a quick tour of their production process, and then did some wine tasting, really amazing, we tried 5 different wines, everything free if you buy a bottle.
