Presentation :

The world of vines and wine is linked to numerous calendars. This work, unique in its kind, allows us to regain awareness of the cycles which have marked the life and work of men for millennia, in interdependence with nature. The days of the calendar tell the story of the natural, symbolic, religious and cultural world of the vine and wine; their richness in content and meaning is breathtaking.

The work includes twelve chapters corresponding to the different months. Each month includes sections relating to various calendars: the cycle of the vine, ancient and modern symbols and religions, the work of viticulture and winemaking, wines and foods, marketing and wine tourism, events and their birthdays, the sayings. A section allows the reader to add their dates and personal notes to this book.

Thanks to this cultivated and practical work, intended for everyone, don't miss the moment to celebrate Saint-Verny, Saint-Nicolas or pinot. Know when to trim or disbud the vine. Watch for the vine flower and Vindiematrix. Prevent frost or water stress. Re-read Virgil or La Fontaine. Discover the Anthesteria or the rustic Dionysia in time. Don't miss the arrival of the red mullet or vine peaches on the stalls. Know which fruit to taste with the new wine, when to look at thrush or Sternbergia lutea, pick blackcurrants, bite grape seeds and how to smear must on your partner.
