2011 Loire vintage: Saturday picking 17th September

During the harvest in Touraine, weekend picking of small parcels of vines is often done by family and friends. Yesterday I passed a vineyard between Epeigné-les-Bois and Francueil where my guess is that this was a case of family and friends getting together for the 2011 vendange.

Time for refreshment to the right
