A very nice customer who was on holiday with his wife came at the cooperative winery.
A shopkeeper of Saint-Père sent them to the co-op but the clients didn't know our wines. Then, I explained our different products, vintages but forgot to introduce the Melon.
Afterwards, the client explained that the shopkeeper indicated we were Melon producers, and because of that his wife was staying in the car telling him to buy one Melon.
After a short silence, I answered him amused that in the cellar the Melon was a grape-variety and thus a wine. My answer made him laught, and in order to make a joke to his wife, he actually left with…a Melon!
