Oak wine barrels, above, as we walk into the wine cave.
The vats of wine before they are strained & put into barrels to ferment.
Yes we were over a barrel with enthusiasm for this tour.
Quite the ladder.

Today is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, it is also the date of our 40th Wedding Anniversary. My husband & I hold the record as having been married much, much longer than either of our parents. So many cards stacked against us when we got married so very long ago, the most significant being having been raised in different religions, & add the fractured family aspect to the equation & you have an interesting formulation.
