The Montlouis Caves des Producteurs

We recently had the opportunity to photograph one of the Montlouis Caves des Producteurs, near Tours in France, where they mature wine in large caves deep in the hillside. This particular cave holds around 200,000 bottles of sparkling white wine. [pano file="/panoramas/montlouis/montlouiscave.html" width="650" height="325"]

That's me kneeling on top of the stack. It's surprisingly uncomfortable sitting on top of that many bottles!
