About a year and a half ago, Tom and I had the opportunity to travel to Southern France in the Provence District with friends. The picture in our header is one we took of the countryside where we were privileged to stay. While there we visited a local winery, which are as numerous as our convenience stores are here in the States, but much more inviting! Anyway, we walked into the little shop and browsed the shelves waiting for the clerk to offer us a taste of their wine. He seemed busy, and we were afraid to interrupt. Not long after, another couple (French speaking) entered the store, and he quickly offered them a glass. It dawned on us that the clerk was waiting for us to ask for a sample in French. Fortunately, one of us remembered the French word for “tasting – digustation” and right away he smiled and poured each of us a glass.
Needless to say, we felt very out of place in the moment. He knew what we wanted, and we knew what we wanted, but we didn’t know how to ask!
In the same way our vineyard has regular visitors who don’t call Orlando home. They stop by hoping for someone to offer them a taste of romance – ideas that they can use in their part of the world. So, if this is you we invite you to ask. We aren’t too busy to hear from you, and we even speak English. 🙂
We have many friends who have great ideas as well, which is why we’ve added one more page called “Contributors” above. Do you have a date night idea you would like to share with us? Do you want to honor your spouse for what they’ve done to bless you romantically? Then, send them to us via e-mail: debiwalter @ gmail.com (I purposefully left spaces to prevent spammers), and we will add your idea to our Contributors page. We’ll even keep you annonymous if you prefer. This site isn’t about us – it’s about the fruit God has given, and like a fine wine we gladly share with all who stop by for a taste!
