Thank you

Thank you to all our friends who have given us feedback, proof-read and listened to us.

Some deserve a special mention:

Sally worked on a number of recipes to pair with Château George 7 as she bottled her first wines and they have been reproduced here. So thank you to Stéphanie Bottreau (chef) and Sandra Hygonnenc (photographer) who were behind a number of the recipes and their beautiful photos on this site. Styling was by Lynne Clover.
