This late Summer weekend heralds their village fête at the start of the harvest and,
if anything like previous celebrations encountered on former visits, I know it will be
one exciting and most enjoyable time for all. Wine is what makes the village tick - it's

this weekend, together with music and dancing.
This post will take you to my brother's village surrounded by vineyards and farmland.

We visited in October of 2008 and are hoping to have beautiful weather and Autumn
colors like this again when we arrive next month following a trip through other lovely
areas of France.
