Epeigné-les-Bois: les vignes communales ont doublés

The second third of Epeigné's communal vineyard (vignoble partagé) has now been planted. Unfortunately due to the coronavirus the three new rows of vines were planted yesterday on 8th May without ceremony. In complete contrast to 13th April 2019 when the first vines were planted. Epeigné's 'grand cru' vineyard is now fenced off to keep the deer out. 

Some photos from Saturday 13th April 2019: 

First rows pruned 7th March:
The first rows of the vignoble partagé were pruned on the morning of Saturday 7th March – a little over a week before France locked down. No sign of social distancing here, although a number of those present avoided shaking hands, kissing or hugging.
