Villes-sur-Auzon village, located just at the foot of Albion plateau and Mount Ventoux south side, at the exit of the gorges of the Nesque, presents to-day its ‘Fête du raisin muscat’ (muscat grape), a modest but genuine festival.

 

On the first photo, you can see Sylvie’s stall (see HERE), and then the manual pressing of the delicious and very sweet, dark purple, almost black grapes. Ventoux’s muscat grape is not used to make wine, but as a dessert or fruit juice. To-day’s festival is a perfect opportunity to taste and purchase some for its quality is outstanding and its price is lower than usually.

A folk group presents a musical show in front of the city hall.

 

A few brightly shining tractors from the ‘50s and the ‘60s turn twice around the village.

In Provence, aperitif is sold more easily than wool items. This one is made mainly from quince juice.

In our region, heritage from the past, great or modest, is found at every street corner, as witnesses for instance this small statue in its niche.        Huberaime
