Grape Juice


Soon, very soon the color red will no longer be ‘just juice’ but will be turned into wine, in this case red wine of course.

Whether it was the Romans or even earlier in those ancient times that first planted and harvested the grapes and made them into wine I am not sure. Certainly the Romans were here in the 118BC, the regional capital was Narbonne and the Romans harvested salt in the village of Peyriac De Mer. The layout of the salt area can still be seen and you can still get a taste of the wine.
