Translated from the French description on the back: “The Beaujolais vineyard extends over 55 km from north to south, and 15 km from east to west. It covers 22,000 hectares spread over 96 municipalities. Average annual harvest, around 1,300,000 hl (that is, 1.3 million hectolitres, or 130 million litres), 50% from the Beaujolais region, 25% from the Beaujolais Village, and 25% from the ten famous wineries: 180 million bottles.”
This is an official Postcrossing card from Maria; it made the journey from Beaujolais all the way to me in Georgia, USA in only seven days. Maria’s handwriting is very, very French, especially the 1’s and 7’s in my address; her writing looks just like that of my first French language teacher. Maria, je vous remercie de tout coeur.
