Sister Ambrosiac

Once you’ve seen the striking and characterful Sister Ambrosiac (that’s right!) at the Uzès market at Place aux Herbes, you don’t forget her selling her wines, honey and incense from the nearby Monastère de Solan.

A Greek Orthodox order, the sisters at the monastery grow organic grapes under the guidance of Mother Hypandia.
