Thank you for this wonderful posting. I really enjoyed it. Any viticultural schools in that area I can look into?

Bertrand

Yes, Mack, there's the Viticulture school of Amboise along the Loire river (it's 30 kilometers from there). You need some basic knowledge in French to follow the courses I guess :

The school even makes its own wines !

Thanks for the update. Did you mean ladybirds or ladybugs?

I meant ladybugs, isn't that the right name for these cute orange bugs ?

TWG

Yep, ladybugs. Seems to be a lot of concern in the US about ladybugs and Burgundy. Any concern in the Loire?

Haven't heard anything, or could be that I didn't listen closely. I'll ask one of these days...
