Most of the literature describes 3 main soil types:light filtering sandstone, fluvial sand and shingle; chalky gravel and red clay, red clay and quartzite shingle. As the geologic map and the photos show, there are more. Many vineyards will have more than a single soil type as one walks up the slope. The Tavel website describes two main soils, galets and lauses (which are to the west, ), and goes on to describe pebbly sandy soil at the foot of the slopes. The cross section of this is well illustrated in the geologic map and in the photo of the hillside cut. Then 5 years go I was asked to teach a class that included a couple of longish lectures on wine- how grapes were grown, how wine was made, and how to pair wine with food. That’s when I began my journey into wine. My husband and I travel on the Amtrak Auto Train quite often. The older we get, the more we appreciate someone else doing the driving 🙂 Great lens – thanks for sharing!
