La Vendange

I wrote about the white grape harvest about two weeks ago. It appears that la vendange is in full swing!
Today while driving the thirty minutes it takes from Narbonne to our village, I got stuck behind I-don't-even-know-how-many tractors whose trailers were overflowing with deep purple grapes.

Will it be a good year for our local wine?
Some say yes, some say just average. Pin It

It's not a good year for our local wine. We (personnaly) willl have no white or red at all and about half the usual rose.
Our neighbors and the 'official' wineries are about in the same shape.
Still, it's a lovely time of year, isn't it?

It just wasn't a normal summer this year, was it?
A friend of mine, who is in the wine business, said the wine from here will most likely be just average.
It is a beautiful time of year, though!
