Harvesting around Le Puy-Notre-Dame

(Sunday 19th October)

In the village of Le Puy-Notre-Dame (eight kilometres west of Montreuil-Bellay) the vendange continues into the Sunday with many wineries still in action.

A marc collection (pomace) outside Domaine de Girardie

Pressing at Domaine de L'Enchantoir where
the old basket press meets
the Bucher RPF30 (pneumatic press)

Everyone has gone for lunch....but they were hand picking earlier
for Aymeric Hillaire the new kid on the block at Melaric
who has 3 ha of Cabernet Franc and and 0.7 ha of Chenin.

Many thanks to Micaela Frow: for the brief report and the photos.
