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!

Try it as well with Ficklin Aged 10 years Tawny Port from Madera, California. Made from two of the traditional Portugese port wine varieties: Tinta Madeira, and Touriga National, the long barrel aging and subsequent exposure to oxygen changes the color of the wine from deep red to a deep copper, and imparts aromas and flavors of poached pear, honey, raisins, toasted nuts and caramel that are delicious with the cheese. It retails for around $28.
No I haven’t but we would like to. I will have to keep your lens in mind when we start planning. Workers aren’t spending fewer hours to produce the same value, but customers are. Those sorts of efficiency gains aren’t captured by traditional productivity statistics, but they are important efficiency gains all the same.
This hill owned me, and when I realized that I wasn’t going to be able to move forward, I had to do the one thing I was trying with all my might to avoid: I had to get off my bike, and walk it about 50 feet. As I joined a few other walkers around me, a guy kindly rode by and offered to help me if I needed it. I thanked him and said I was fine, and just did my best to get my beautiful rented bike and me up that beast of a hill. Once I got to the top, I figured I’d just slip back on the bike and keep riding. But, nope. I was huffing and puffing and no matter how hard I tried to pedal up the next smaller hill just enough to get my feet back in the toe clips, I couldn’t. I wasted so much time just trying to get back on my bike, that I eventually decided to just jog up one more hill with the bike (which quickly became a slow walk) and then make up for lost time the second half of the ride.
