Stacked up against the wall

Stained by centuries of juice and strain
although of course a barrel is not a wine press, there was a congruity to the image.

Thanks Hilary, I think the Languedoc is Cathar country, which has long been on the list of places to visit, for both the buildings and the fascinating history.
