Learning about wine, vines and vignerons whilst living in the Languedoc

Remembrance

Leave a comment

Margon commemorated the fallen like every village in France and the UK. A minute’s silence was followed by a procession to the memorial in the cemetery where the Mayor spoke and the children of the village primary school read out the names of those from Margon who died in World War 1. Ten men from a tiny village including two brothers and the Count of Margon.

I'm a recently retired (early!) teacher from County Durham in North east England. I am going to be spending most of the next year in the Languedoc leaarning about wines, vineyards and the people who care for both.
