It’s a combination of different factors, the cool climate, the soils, the long experience of the French winemaker. The wines are made in the tradition of western wines with new technologies and modern equipment.

Silversmiths: The Ywama village gold and silver smiths are another fascinating lake stop and have been in operation for decades. You can not only pick up a good bargain but also watch and marvel at their intricate work.
