Hello again !

Some nice activity here at Mas de l'Houvande during the last week.

For the first time in seven (!) years the field in front of the house and the terrace has been ploughed.
Up to now we and the guests could only "admire" the weed and the disorder, now grass for hay is sown and will probably come out soon, thanks to the nice rain of the last days.

Our cats have grown up by now, especially little Marcello who is now one year old - he has become a real acrobat climbing trees like a champion.

A "world premiere" in the valley of the Lot: Château Fages develops its 2011 cuvée as in ancient Roman times, namely in amphoras.
And then to say that Toni, Rita and I contributed unconsciously to that by helping out with the vendange.

I can hardly wait to taste it.

Have a nice sunday.
