Take a tour of the Chateau Mouton Rothschild winery the next time you find yourself in Bordeaux, #France. Art, antiquities, wine, wine, wine. We're talking Grand Cru here! An amazing day.
The Bordeaux wine tour of Chateau Mouton Rothschild includes an in-depth tour of the winery and its Wine in Art Museum, and wine tasting of the famous reds.

Thank you to +Laurence Norah who discovered this. There's a way to turn it off if you don't want this info known...I'm ambivalent so far. What do you think?
Earlier this month, we learned that Twitter's considering introducing view counts to individual tweets, and it looks like Google+ just flipped the switch
