The arrival of cherries indicates that summer is really here. The fruit from the farms and orchards around Uzès will be ready soon and what could be more authentic than picking your own red, juicy cherries? Domaine Natura is located in St Laurent-la-Vernède, a pretty village just 13 kilometers (8 miles) north of Uzès. This is a small winery that not only makes delicious wines, but they have bountiful orchards. Hours are Monday-Saturday 10am-12noon and 3pm-6pm. www.domainenatura.fr
