A taste of the sweet life

Whale Man

There once was a whale, washed up on the shore...

There once was a farmer who wanted to learn, he wanted to share...

That is how the history of the Whaleman began on the shores of the Mediterennean, near Port La Nouvelle & the Domaine de Jugnes.  I don't want to spoil the whole visit, so I won't give all the details.  However, I will share the photos of the large 20 meter whale skeleton that once weighed 40 tons and now sits in the wine cave of a local vignernon. I will also tell you that he is the man to talk to if you want to know anything about the whales he is so passionate about!

Made up of 235 bones, the skeleton was carefully put back together by the Whaleman and his wife, taking 4 months.
