I’ve never tasted muscat grapes until I set my feet unto the Luberon valley. The closest thing I’ve ever had was probably the muscat wines from Beaume de Venise that one might find in the wine cellars in Singapore.

The grapes have an intoxicating floral aroma and a distinctive sweetness that would leave you yearning for more, pretty much like those perfectly burnt caramel popcorns in the States. I bought this bag of muscat grapes from a roadside stall where they grow the fruit and other vegetables on a patch of land nearby.

It was a wonderful start to my tour in the Luberon Valley.
