2017 Harvest

 

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
