12:30pm – At the table a Provençal Culinary Experience Authentic
Located in an old 16th century mansion, on the ramparts of the perched village of Gordes,
La Bastide de Gordes is the ideal setting to discover the art of living in the Luberon and live an authentic Provençal experience.
A Bastide with a long history
A typical bastide building whose characteristic dry-stone walls reflect the history of the area, a luxury hotel perfectly integrated into its surroundings thanks to a renovation.
respectful of history and traditional know-how, La Bastide is a link between the medieval village of Gordes, dominated by its castle, and the magnificent panorama of the Luberon it faces.
Bathed in the Provençal scents carried by the breath of the Mistral, dressed in the lights and warm colours of a region flooded with sunlight, rocked by the sound of cicadas, the Bastide de Gordes is part of its environment.
3:30pm – Domain de la Citadelle
Mainly located in the commune of Ménerbes, on the northern slope of the Luberon. Domaine de la Citadelle extends over eleven localities, four terroirs and climates and is divided into in 74 plots with rather late sectors and altitudes up to 300 metres.
Each plot conditions a precise and meticulous work in order to highlight the expression of the terroir and the grape variety of each of them.
An organic certified wine estate since 2016.
In a constant concern for quality, the vine is trellised and its yield is limited by various works ranging from short pruning to severe disbudding, or even some years to green harvesting.
The first corkscrews appeared in the middle of the 17th century. It is probably an English invention.
It is generally thought that the idea comes from the twisted worm of the bulletpiece (or bulletpiece) supplied with the firearms. Corkscrews were originally manufactured by gunsmiths who were members of the City of London guilds. It was also at this time that the English began to age their wines in bottles rather than barrels. Before that, the wine regions had the practice of keeping the wine in barrels and pulling it out in jugs.
With the industrial era, the shape of glass bottles changed from the so-called “onion bulb” shape to the cylindrical shape we know today, making it easier to store them. At the same time, as the neck of the bottle is narrower, it is necessary to manufacture caps with parallel sides that are compressed before inserting them into the bottle to ensure a perfect seal. A cork extractor or “corkscrew” has therefore become essential. The first patented corkscrew dates back to 1795, and it was invented by the English Samuel Henshall.
