French wine vineyards


As we drove in southern France, we saw miles and miles of vineyards. During our travels, we stayed at a bed and breakfast owned by one of these vineyards. They told us that it is illegal to water the vineyards because the plants need to send their roots deep to get water. The average depth of the roots is 60 feet.


They told us about how each plant needs to be trimmed during the season. Only two vines can grow off of a main vine. The other late comers must be snipped off. It is a very time-consuming and passionate affair. But the end result is worth the effort.
