🎖🗡It was a great honor to be inducted into the l’Ordre Illustre des Chevaliers de Méduse yesterday with my "brothers" Marc Bayle and Alan Bryden.
🍷Founded in 1690, it is one of the oldest bacchic brotherhoods of France that has always had women as members! It promotes and supports the appellations of Bandol, Bellet, Palette, Cassis, Côtes de Provence and Coteaux Varois en Provence.

🙏Big thanks to my long-time friend and partner in crime Pascal Ange Petit for presenting me and my friend Anne Locke for the photos!

🎖🗡Ce fut un immense honneur d’être intronisé à l’Ordre Illustre des Chevaliers de Méduse hier à Bandol avec mes deux "frères" Marc Bayle et Alan Brydenn.
🍷Fondée en 1690, c’est l’une des plus anciennes confréries bachiques de France qui a toujours eu des membres féminins. L'objet principal de la confrérie est de soutenir les appellations de Provence: Bandol, Bellet, Palette, Cassis, Côtes de Provence et Coteaux Varois en Provence.
