Les Promenade du Parovic


Voegtlinshoffen : The Rose garden walk

The rose plantations in the vineyards are not there just for their beauty: rose flowers are highly sensitive to powdery mildew and aphids which, at a time when agricultural science and meteorology were in their infancy, told the winegrower that he should treat his vines.

Brightly coloured roses also acted as markers when horses tilled the earth, so that a horse would not pull out a vine or a stake by making too tight a turn.
