Anyway, some of these women came together this weekend …a wonderful joyful event , the Melac Vendange in Paris. A street party to celebrate the grape harvest of a vine that adornes thae wine shop owned by Monseuir Melac on rue Leon Frot in 11th arrondissenment Paris.
This has become an annual event for this group of women, (who were originally labelled “wild women” and are sometimes known as “Murielles” by the Australian member of the group.
There were honorary men at the gathering this year. Most celebrated of all is a distinguished gentleman known as “Le Silver Fox”..A cheer greeted his arrival.. He joined the group on the first Vendange they attended, even though he does not speak a word of English. has been an honoured guest ever since.
We were also honoured by the author of Paris daily photo, a blog which helps us Parisophiles to get our daily Paris fix
The mayor of the arrondissentt also pays a visit to see the famous Ronice author of the blog A Paris journey.
