Wine (3)

With all these labels depicting berets, one would almost believe the beret to be merely folklore; not more than a traditional picture to give the wine a more authentic French image.
Not true, of course!

The whole proces of wine making, from the pruning in the vineyards,
the picking of the grapes to the testing in the cellars, happens in the presence of berets.

And the vintner selling his wine from the farm, like here in Provence:

And then again, labels, of course...
