C'est cadeau - A Pic a Day in May #19

Our local wine co-op had their annual open house last weekend, so Ken and I went over for some wine. We got a nice discount on forty liters and six bottles with an added bonus of a gift bottle of sauvignon blanc. We did a little tasting and saw some of the art on exhibit (a very talented macro photographer with a penchant for insects).

The label on our gift bottle. It says: "It's a gift! Thank you and see you soon!" I'm guessing the JPO inside the balloons stands for Journées Portes Ouvertes (Open House Days).

I call the co-op "local" because it's right across the river from St.-Aignan.  All the grapes they use come from that side of the river in the St.-Romain area; none of them are from our side. So, the wine is not as "local" as it could be. The real local wine comes from the grapes grown outside our back gate and we have to go to the winery for that!

  3. 40 litres of wine! Dare I ask how long that will last? I'm guessing you buy it in large plastic containers and then bottle it at home? Lucky you.

  6. The insect photographer -- is that the guy who manages to take many many shots bursts and then superposes them and they look almost 3D?
