With the help of Herve and Joyce we picked 500 kilos of old vine Grenache. We are glaneurs or gleaners, picking up the grappillons and the bunches missed by the pro pickers. Our lovely friend Thierry Forestier has lovingly tended these vines for years without the use of any herbicide or pesticide . The tanks were leant by the Moulin brothers who make the astonishingly good and whacky POMPOM rouge
Eating and tasting wine with friends from Londons Terrier restaurant, 161 – great places to taste incredible Natural wine and food. Sitting in Thierrys vine yard as the sun sets drinking the wine next to the grapes it was made from … wow thats what I call local.
