Champagne and vineyards

De La Salle’s mother was from the house of Moët, a well known for producing quality champagne.  Brother Claude took Brother Mike and myself out to the country to see the vineyards of the Champagne region of France. We also saw vines that were probably used by the Moët family even when De La Salle was alive.
