I thought recently about collecting randomly some of these pictures featuring friends and families enjoying time together around a table with a few bottles or drinks at reach.
Wine has always been central in France and when relatives, colleagues or friends would gather for some event or share a meal at the same table, there would always be a good wine or spirit to help warm up the mood. Looking at these scenes is an intuitive way which works better than a scientific study to feel how our ancestors felt and behaved.
Most of these pictures had no dates or location written in the back, so my dates are pure guess.
Some of these scenes may involve other drinks than wine but I'm open and I'll take everything.
