I've landed in France and after a brief snafu at the airport, I've managed to meet up with my friend Charles Neal in Normandy. We're holed up in his farm house, armed with little other than strong drink, endless rounds of Camembert, and a strong wifi signal. We're beginning our 2018 hunt for new Calvados, Cognac, Armagnac, and French wine imports for the many K&L wine clubs in the Pays d'Auge tomorrow morning, but first we must fortify our bodies for the onslaught ahead. I've got my laptop and my camera, along with dozens of appointments to share with you live over the next fourteen days. Stay tuned for daily updates packed with plenty of photos and stories from the road, as we eat and drink our way from north to south. It's going to be a lot of fun.
