Autumn is on its way and so is Jones Fitou

Picking ended at Domaine Jones on the 8th of October.  The last grapes we picked were in the Jones Fitou vineyard in Tuchan and there was a distinct autumnal feel with the leaves turning to dark crimson and the early morning mist hiding the Mont Tauch mountain. 

This will be an exciting year for Domaine Jones as the first ever Jones Fitou will be made.  It could not have been done though without my amazing Mum and Dad who courageously came to help towards the end of the harvest to bring in the first ever Jones FITOU.
