The art of stone wall building - stones flung from the fields of vines, Languedoc

wall of barn in minervois, france

A simple wall, where wall meets much renovated stone storage shed in the Minervois, attests to the tough life that is necessary to create great wines.

Fields of rocks are broken down and pillaged to make ground accommodating enough for the vine to take root, to create wines that bring heaven to those who love this drink of the Gods.
