BBQ in the Vines
An open invitation to a BBQ in the Vines
FAB PO members , Domaine Treloar are having a BBQ in one of the fields next to their Vineyards on SUNDAY 24th May 2009 kicking off at 12 noon.
Basically it is bring your own (BYO) everything which on the positive side means you can invite your neighbours, friends & family for a great day out and lots of people can meet other people.
Be prepared for a bit of Gumboot throwing and Wine Spitting (distance and accuracy). All in a good days fun and laughter. Hopefully last years gumboot champs can come and try to retain their titles!
There are NO toilets in the vineyards but peeing is good for the vines. Be prepared to find a hiding place if nature calls.
Football games are to take place on the dirt track with fields either side leading up to where we are having the BBQ this is so the ball doesn't hit the vines as they are a little fragile at the moment. Please don't park your car in this stretch otherwise it may be part of the game!
From the N9 towards Thuir - drive past Trouillas Village on the main road in the direction of Llupia (past the cellier de Trouillas) - about 1km past the co-op on your left you will see Clos Massotte Winery (a big iron building with purple barrels), opposite the winery is a gravel layby, pull into the layby and turn right (keeping right) and follow the gravel track along to the hillside which is where we will be.
The BBQ will only be cancelled if it is raining or very windy otherwise we will be there. I will email in the morning if this is the case.
Any problems or questions please email Rachel at
