Monts D'or Church (1)

(This is a continuation of my travel journal from Provence (Provence, France). Please start there for the complete story, and full entertainment value. If you've already read that, stay here. You're in the right place.)

We got started the next day, driving along a nice little French road that you typically see in magazines or catalogs. We stopped to take pictures of a couple of wooden casks (barrels that age wine) when a man in the house behind us called us over to join him and his family for some refreshments. We accepted, and over the next hour, we learned about his background: his family owned this vineyard for over 500 years, and

had original documents to prove it, all them signed by famous rulers of France including Napoleon. As each new king assumed power, the family would receive a document indicating that they still owned the land they lived on. It was also accompanied by a document explaining the amount of "property tax" they owed, which was never really that much, unless you take inflation and exchange rates into account. I took a bunch of pictures of them, their wine, their food, more of them, and all with a glass in my hand. After we were too drunk to drive, we left. Happy.
