The harvest began with chilly mornings but relatively beautiful. The rain invited itself Friday afternoon. This little rain is good for the grape but the pickers were less happy...
The grapes are healthy. Little or no rot on grapes. Quantities are small but the quality is there. Will we have an exceptionnal 2012 vintage ? Only time can tell.
A small thunderstorm broke last night with rain. Today we really feel that we are in autumn! It is very cloudy, with rain and wind... The day will be long in the vineyards.
Here are some pictures from Sunday
Some vine stocks are more loaded than others
