Here we go!
Languedoc is a great wine region with some known denominations like Corbieres and Minervois. Young grape leaves have already sprouted all over and time and palates will tell if 2006 turns out to a memorable vintage. The second photo is taken in Chateau de Violet in Peyriac Minervois. It is one of the many wine domains established in the zone. Madame Emilie made great friendship with Greta.
If they go on with prohibition of street soccer how can french ever expect to have another soccer genious like Zinedine Zidane? Photo taken in a charming small village called Caunes-Minervois. By the way nice flower pots with grape reliefs.
It is worth a visit to the Carcassonne town center where they held a market every saturday morning. Also you might find it interesting to take a look at the Cité (castle) and the old bridge from the riverside. While the Cité of Carcassonne is full of restaurants and souvenir shops, the town center is pretty popular and calm.
Labastide-en-Val is a very nice small village that you might reach if you get lost driving through the Corbieres region. 🙂
