Near Avignon, Avignon: 7 reviews and 15 photos
Apologies for the poor picture quality, but this photo was snapped out of the window of a moving bus between Avignon and Pont du Gard, after I'd done a double take to confirm that I'd really seen what I thought I saw ...
Grape growing is clearly big business in Provence - and it is home to many prestigious vineyards such as the world famous Chateauneuf du Pape - but growing vines on roundabouts is probably taking it to the limit!
And whilst I applaud the use of all available land for agricultural production, I can't say that I would personally be queueing up to sample grapes that come complete with enhanced fuel additives - the sort of 'je ne sais quoi' that I think most of us would happily forego!
