Vendange in Languedoc - Grapes, Wind, and Mushrooms
One of the best times to visit Languedoc is late September and October - Vendange is taking place - and there is a freshness in the air. Quickly after the harvest the villages celebrate with music, dancing, and events, and the vineyards quickly effervesce with leaves changing colors.
Walking in the woods of the hills of the Minervois and Corbieres - one can find mushrooms and toadstools - but alway check before eating with the local pharmacy as many are poisonous or not easilly edible. For those seeking the marvels of man - the windmills at Nevian, not far from Narbonne are a sight to behold - and the view from them is grand too. For those seeking beach pleasures the Mediterranean is still warm enough to sunbathe and swim.
