A Gift Certificate from L’Auberge Provençal!
We would like to thank everyone who made it out for our Sizzling Suckling Pig Roast on the 4th of July!
Everyone had a blast, especially Winey & Cheesy, who were extremely excited to see Alain in his festive American Flag T-shirt and Celeste singing along with the Brogue Rouges and their Hammer Dulcimer!
The Petanque Court on the front lawn became a battlefield. The First Prize winner took home a $75 Gift Certificate and The Second Prize winner got a L’Auberge Provencale Goodie Basket filled with homemade James, Granola, Vinegar and Olive Oil!
It was a wonderful day enjoyed by all (except maybe the Pig)! Winey & Cheesy had their camera’s ready to document the day’s festivities… we hope you enjoy them!

Meet the Winemaker, Caleb Foster,
of Buty Winery in the Walla Walla Valley, Washington State
Enjoy pairings with seasonal cuisine,
from Chef de Cuisine, Scott Meyers.
Featuring the freshest ingredients from local farms
Winemaker of 19 vintages in Washington, New Zealand and South Africa, Caleb designs Buty wines with Nina as personal statements. International winemaking has taught him to stay true to Washington wine’s character of origin.
Buty’s philosophy of winemaking reflects the old religious worldview of human growth from the body to mind to soul to spirit, called”the great nest of being.” The all inclusive nest of being grows over time as we reach for the spiritual levels of life. So, too, Buty Wines evolve including and expanding their quality at each stage of their development. The wine’s development is a cumulative and artistic process. Every stage of growth is equally important for a fine wine, starting with a great site developed into a vineyard, from fruit into wine, from cellared bottles to our enjoyment at a shared meal. A great wine calls for complete attention as they expand the qualites present at every stage.
Romantic Homes Magazine featured L’Auberge Provencale in their April 2010 issue.
The article, Country Comfort, highlights all of the small touches that make L’Auberge Provencale worthy of being your favorite romantic getaway. Winey and Cheesy thoroughly enjoyed this editorial; of course they like anything that has to do with fine food, wine and decor!
We hope you enjoy it as well.

Winey and Cheesey have been enjoying the heavenly weather this year. Blue skies and puffy clouds in July? Incredible they say. What a perfect time to visit the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Within 5 hours from anywhere in the USA, just an hour and a half from DC what a great destination, L”Auberge Provencale. The chefs have been cooking up some great food featuring the bounty of our gardens and local farms. Pick a tomato at 5:00 and enjoy it that night! Wow…can anything be better than that?
Answer: a picnic in one of our favorite spots. Egg Hollow or Dickey Ridge picnic grounds on the skyline drive, and Blandy farm are two of my favorite spots. Enjoy the pictures below of these beautiful areas. Celeste went to skyline last week and saw not just the usual deer, but a huge owl, and a mother black bear with her twin cubs. No one seemed disturbed by the “tourist” taking pictures. We’ll be happy to pack you a picnic with or without wine. Just give us notice the day before and we can have it ready for you after breakfast! You then can go off hiking, canoeing, wine touring, exploring, or just sitting by the pool at the Villa. A perfect way to spend the day. The picnics are 75.00 for two and you keep the basket! Wine is additional and winey will help with your selections.
