Un grand merci to my Mum and Uncle, who flew in from Ashby de la Zouch to help with the harvest. They were game for it all - up at 6 and out harvesting the grenache noir, back to the Vatican to destalk and get the grapes into the vat and out again to harvest. We picked a total of 2000 kg with the help of the vendangeurs from La Roque (even more remote than Tuchan). They were the experienced turbo team but they are men of the Terre and kill pigs and make black pudding. My Mum was a star though and my Uncle captured these treasured moments on film.
