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. There’s a ton of information you can read online these days and there are more travel websites for people to leave reviews on than I can count. Watch the travel channel on TV, buy and read books that were written for travel agents. Just immerse yourself in travel!

The Sullivan Steele is full of peaches,melon, tropical fruit and pink grapefruit. Not News Zealand and not Sancerre, but a Sauvignon Blanc that is something in-between. The acidity is there, but this wine is smooth and bright and delicious with the cheese.

Ever wonder what goes on backstage and before the play, to bring you that entertainment? Read on; it’s a fascinating journey. There is a huge failure of good manners in today’s society, and there seems to be a special breed of poor manners encountered in parking lots nationwide.

Tavel , a small village located in the Department of Gard in Languedoc-Roussillon is reknown for its production of rosé wines. The village is located about 46 kms from our home in Sablet, just west of the A9 autoroute. We have driven past the exit sign for Tavel many times but had never been to Tavel, so we decided to go one afternoon to explore and déguster – taste wine.
