16th August! It is the first time, in living memory, that the Les Tournels harvests have been so early. The water shortage has been a significant factor this year, only serving to aggravate things. Yet already the first grapes harvested are showing high quality potential. Let’s hope time allows us to bring in this promising harvest, without a hitch.
With grape machine harvesting at night, to limit the excessive temperatures, the grapes are taken to the cellar and wine presses. Some happy campers have been there to discover our know-how, but especially to share in this “end-of-day” harvesting with our teams.
