#2015Loire – Clos Chossay, Epeigné-les-Bois 'Grand Cru' Vin de France

The elite team of pickers head to the vines.
The weather was still a little damp
but rain had stopped sometime earlier
so the helicopters to dry the fruit
were stood down
Netting to protect the best of the grapes from predatory birds

Le Patron gives his instructions 

Treasured grapes lovingly harvested  

Colour co-ordinated expertise....

Lifting the netting 
Checking grape maturity
Completely focused vendangeurs 

Pickers motors parked on road outside
