Languedoc Wine Country Map Update in Google

Awesome!  Google Maps updated its satellite images of Domaine O’Vineyards and several other estates in our area.  The satellite images are in much higher detail than they used to be.  And the new images of O’Vineyards includes the winery which didn’t exist in the old images from 2005.  COOOL.  Check out the map yourself by googling O’Vineyards.

I really like Google Maps.  I haven’t checked our map in a little while, but I think this is a very recent update.  It appears to be an early spring photo which could mean I caught it just a few weeks after the photo was taken.

For some reason, the map updates seem really important to me.  I remember a few years ago (2007?) when Google updated its images of New Orleans and you could see the blue tarps still covering the leaky roofs all over town.  You could see some parts of the much publicized lower ninth which had been so destroyed by the canal break.

Now, a more cheerful memory has been built into the Google Map.  Domaine O’Vineyards!  The winery is built and life has been restored to these vines that were once destined to be ripped out of the ground.  Hurrah for new beginnings!

I hope you enjoy this little French wine map from O’Vineyards and Google.  The Languedoc deserves a lot more of these updates because there’s a lot of beautiful french wine country.  If you find some other vineyard satellite images you like, please let me know and I will post about them too.

  4. At the last juction, bear left. the road sign “Ave de la Montagne Noire” (confusing as it seems to show a right turn)
  5. After another 500m you will see our red brick color building in the middle of the vines.
