2008, harvesting in shorts...

If in August one could easily wear warm cloth in Alsace, nothing like this in this period of harvest where the weather could not be more favorable, remaining dry and sunny.

At this beginning of our third week of harvest, we boosted our reduced team of the beginning and we are now close to 50 people in the vineyards. The results are excellent, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris exceeds 14° of potential alcohol. We have therefore good hopes to be able to carry out a late harvest in the coming days…

Moreover the noble rot seems to want to develop as shown on this photograph of Pinot Gris which mutated in white to ressemble the Sauternes sémillon variety Wink
