Champagne markers are here

by Michael Alderete on 12/9/2002

Latest photos from France (yes, I’m still working on this), of the stone markers used to indicate which fields belong to which houses. We passed hundreds of these while driving in the countryside around Reims and Epernay.

Rochelle was the one who started the photo series, with a scream that we needed to stop. She’d spotted a marker from Salon Le Mesnil, probably the rarest of the markers we drove past, and wanted a picture. And with that, we were stopping every few miles, or hundred feet, to snap another photo.

Many of them are quite beautiful. We’ll be continuing to photograph these stones.
