Inside a mountain

The first room as we begin our tour of the inner mountain passages
As we left the first floor - there were many more rooms and areas that I didn't photograph, we headed underground, into the tunnels and rooms that had been blasted out of a mountain. Here we could see where John spent 2 years carving into the wall, as well as many bars and wine cellars. Most of the wine bottles were covered with so much dust, the labels couldn't be seen.

This is off the main room - back up bottles, just in case....

underground, inside the mountain

The sculptor and some of his work
That's a big bottle of champagne
