Down in the valley

They grow grapes in the Luberon and make wine. The wine, according to one web site about the region, is made from blends of syrah, grenache, mourvèdre, cinsault, and carignan grapes (and a few others). They make red, rosé, and white wines. We've had some in the past, especially while we stayed there. I'll have to look around our stores here and pick up a bottle or two (if I can find any) just to taste it again.

The wind blew through the night again, but it seems to be dying down again. The big news is that it's 12ºC (almost 54ºF) outside this morning. Pretty mild for January.


  1. I love this photo! And thanks for another ear worm. Hang your head over. Hear the wind blow.

  2. Down in the valley so low...

  3. I would enjoy staying for a week or two in a place with such a peaceful view like this photo! We spent one night outside of Apt in a small hotel in a vineyard! With a pool (we had a night swim!), wine cave and not one other guest in the place! It was heaven. We were very slow in leaving the next morning after a very leisurely petit déjeuner!

  4. mitch, ha!
