With this, I discovered that I’m a sucker for hand-painted bottle label door signs.

 

Old farming implements at Domaine Jerome Gradassi.

 

Detail of Roman-era structure adjacent to Domaine de Chateaumar.


 

Apropos.

 

Main intersection in Chateauneuf du Pape.

  

Like a centuries-old San Francisco without the water.


 

Tunnels like this are scattered throughout the town of Chateauneuf du Pape.


 

They also take their bell towers pretty seriously in CdP.


 

Beautiful old mail box.

Apparently, there are some wineries in this little town.


 

You make a soft turn on this Roussillon street and are smacked in the gob with this gorgeous view of the dramatic cliff-side.


 

Cafe le Lezard in Opoul. Very cool little spot with a brilliant beer list and wonderful food. Plus, a bartender with a predilection for eclectic rock music.

 


Hidden deep within the dramatic landscape of Roussillon, there is a power dismissed as rumour.

 

View from “The Disco Bus”. The last “real” thing I can confirm.

Layers of subterfuge and encryption prohibit a true understanding of the goings-on within what appears to be a simple garage facility from its unassuming front door. 

…and others may happen here


Some of the things that are said to happen happen here..

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are things said and done within Vingrau in the heart of Roussillon that I heard, and saw, and tasted that deny tradition, deflect rational thought, and defy all I have learned.

 

Confusing the senses.


 

There are things that may or may not be occurring in Vingrau that, like the elephant in the room, are undeniable but about which one does not speak.

 

Subterfuge of a mad scientist.

There was a man — a bright and genial, but shadowy, man — who spoke in clear and concise language of methods and intents. He told us of truths while casually diverting attention from facts.

 

Renaud Chastagnol (unconfirmed).

There are things happening in Vingrau…I felt them…there are things I can not comprehend, but I know them to be true.
