The grape harvest is largely finished in Provence (Originally posted September 30) and in recent weeks we have visited several of the best vineyards in all of Provence. They are very satisfied with this year’s harvest, a high quality that was not appreciably affected by the three heat waves that have been, but with a quantity that is slightly lower than normal.
Last weekend there was extensive rain, so it was busy days in the vineyard before the rain came. Have you not seen how to harvest grapes by machine, then my video cut will be very interesting.
There is also a video showing how the whole grape clusters are transported to the tank for a macération carbonique fermentation at Domaine La Blaque in Pierrevert.
