The drive to Cremieu was tiring, mostly because it rained heavily most of the way. It was still raining when we arrived in Cremieu, but that didn't keep us from strolling around the central part of town, although it did restrict my picture taking. The town was absolutely spectacular, with an amazing number of medieval buildings, and I eventually did manage to take a few photos (see below). We also stopped into a bar frequented by locals, where we had a couple of glasses of sparkling Bugey, and we discovered a great brewpup in a building that was once part of an Urseline convent. We eventually walked back to our hotel for dinner. The hotel had a beautiful dining room, and the dinner was outstanding. They also had an excellent wine list, which gave us one more chance to have some Savoie wines. We wound up ordering two wines from indigenous Savoie grapes; a red Mondeuse and a white Altesse, both from Domaine Ravier in Apremont. The next morning we left early for our flight, and made the long and tiring trip home, where I’m writing from now.
