Assignan, Herault, Languedoc

Free wine being offered to all at the Mimosa Festival in Roquebrun

There is nothing like a pre-valentine blast at Roquebrun where the Mimosa reigns, flowering on surrouding trees, the wine barrels, and in everyones hands. Here on one of the floats wine was being offered to all that wanted a taste of the good stuff. Behind it were a group of dancing chefs with bellows full of flour attacking onlookers with puffs of white powder.
