After one year of work, the time has come for the harvest. A moment that everyone can agree on. We come face to face with the vine. We create connections. We select the bunches. We harvest the ripe grapes by hand. It’s physical, but relieves stress. An enriching and unforgettable experience. Warmth, good spirits and, above all else, reflection reign over the rows.
We are delighted to welcome highly motivated volunteers, who should reserve their spot by signing up using the Registration Form.

“When the blackbird sees the grape harvesters enter the vines, he is especially surprised to see that they do not share his fear of the scarecrow” — Jules Renard
