Happy St. Vincent’s Day to all the Vincents in the world-
January 22 is the big day.
And a big day it is, especially in France where they revere the patron saint of winemakers. Hanging in my home is a treasured poster of St Vincent with the following inscription: Saint Vincent: Protège-nous de la soif, de la grele, des maladies, du gel et des impots (St Vincent- Protect us from drought, hail, disease, frost and from taxes)
Here is my wish: would that all wine lovers get to spend one St. Vincent’s Day in Burgundy at the Tournante Festival!
