Wines of Uzès
I discovered one of my favorite wines, Uzès, today.
I start French lessons this afternoon. Good timing.
Anyone who knows me is probably laughing right now. There have been many “new starts”. The funny part about it is you never know which new beginning will stick.
Let’s just say my first morning’s walk was a success. It led me to a part of Uzès I’ve never explored. Best of all, I found Domaine Saint Firmin.
While walking along one of the back roads in Uzès, I passed Domaine Saint Firmin, like I have several times before. But this time, I heard bottles rattling and turned around to go back.
“Are they washing wine bottles?” said me to me. “That would be interesting to see.”
My curiosity was piqued, and I headed down the entrance road to find out what was going on.
They weren’t washing bottles. They were bottling wine.
When the wine is ready to store in bottles, they back a bottling truck up to the door and work from there.
The mobile process is complete, from dispensing wine into bottles …
…to pack the final product into shipping boxes.
…. to place the cartons on pallets.
... with a backup
Plus, wrapping the cartons tightly for shipping.
Wines of Uzès
Admittedly, I don’t have much knowledge about wine. I know what I like, but that’s as far as it goes. One of the most exciting things about living in France, especially in this region, is that Languedoc/Occitanie wines are excellent. This area is one of the most prolific wine-growing regions in France. And in the world! So, if I put my mind to it, I can learn something about wine. If not, I’ll enjoy the tastings!
