Village Scenes in Uzes: Domaine Saint Firmin

Wines of Uzès

I discovered one of the favorite wines of Uzès today. I start French lessons this afternoon. Good timing. 

Anyone who knows me is probably laughing right now. There have been many “new starts”. The funny part about is, you never know which new beginning will stick.

Let’s just say my first morning’s walk was a success. It led me to a part of Uzès I’ve never explored.  Best of all, I found Domaine Saint Firmin.

Domaine Saint Firmin in UzesWhile walking along one of the back roads in Uzès, I passed Domaine Saint Firmin, like I have several times before. But this time I heard bottles rattling and turned around to go back.

“Are they washing wine bottles?” said me to me. “That would be interesting to see.”

My curiosity was piqued and I headed down the entrance road to find out what was going on.

They weren’t washing bottles, they were bottling wine.

Apparently, when the wine is ready to store in bottles, they back a bottling truck up to the door and work from there.

Admittedly, I don’t have much knowledge about wine. I know what I like, but that’s as far as it goes. One of the most exciting thoughts about living in France, especially this region, is that Languedoc/Occitanie wines are excellent. This area is one of the most prolific wine growing regions in France. And in the world!  So, I’m certain if I put my mind to it, I can learn something about wine. If not, I’ll enjoy the tastings!
