Painting Wine Barrels

Puech Haut‘s collection of painted barrels (some of which are a tiny bit more sophisticated than my painted barrels ;D ) has sent a small piece of the collection to the French Pavillion in Shanghai.

I guess I’m supposed to wax poetic about the awesome artisitic implications of painting barrels.  Or the marketing benefits.  Honestly, I just like painting on wood.  And sometimes, you have barrels to spare.  So a big high five to Gérard Bru for getting artists to paint some barrels and then shipping them around the world to show everybody how the Languedoc rolls.

This story came via the Chef Pourcel’s blog.  Famous twin blogging chefs from Agde with continued ties to the Languedoc .

  1. Best by GPS.
    Follow the signs to Mazamet/ Villemoustaussou using the D118. At the end of the last straight part of D118, you will come to a roundabout with the Dyneff gas station.
  2. Take the exit towards Pennautier. Continue 500m to a small roundabout and go straight over.
  3. Look out for the second road on your right, Avenue des Cévennes which curves up hill (about 1km) to Avenue de la Montagne Noire on the left.
  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.
