I am re-posting this post as the first one was compromised. Apologies if you’ve logged on and thought I’ve already read this! You probably have.
It seems that every few meters along the road there is a wine-producing château, a caveau – cave, a wine co-operative with its huge silver vats awaiting the harvest or a vente de vin – wine sales, sometimes advertised with a hand drawn sign on a piece of plywood. The Languedoc-Roussillon is the largest wine-producing region in the world. The 700,000 acres of vines produce more than one-third of France’s wine. We are doing our best to make sure none of it is exported.

I will be posting as many pictures as possible this week while the signal here in the South of France is OK after which it will be crummy to nonexistent.
À demain. See you tomorrow.
Tomorrow is here. Am now cracking on with the next post!
