End of the 2010 harvest

A tired Jones

You will be glad to hear that the Jones 2010 harvest is looking much better than I am (except perhaps for my new pink flowery wellies).  Exhausted after 6 weeks of harvest activity starting with the whites in Maury and finishing today with the Carignan and Grenache in my new Fitou vineyard in Tuchan.  So what has Katie been up to?  Picking, pressing, fermenting the whites and picking, destalking and pumping over the reds I feel like I have done a 6 week work out at the gym.  But then your grapes start to ferment and the Vatican is alive with pop popping sounds and exquisite perfumes of fermenting juice and it is all worth while.
