Epeigné-les-Bois: great light again
Cold day with a biting north east wind but bright, clear blue skies and wonderfully intense light. Epeigné is a small village of just under 400 inhabitants on the eastern limit of Indre-et-Loire, close to the départment of Loir-et-Cher. Vines used to be quite important here and, while there are some vineyards left, the area under vine has declined substantially over the past 20 years, as producers have retired and taken the subsidy for rooting out their vines.
