Harvest Time in the South of France 2010

It’s harvest time in most parts of the Languedoc and Roussillon.  Thank you for being so understanding of my on-and-off blogging throughout the harvest and vinification season.  I won’t have enough time to do much traveling or video.  What I can do is show you all the great work on other winemaker blogs in the region!

I’ve decided to round up all the best 2010 harvest blogging from the Languedoc Roussillon.  And there’s a lot to choose from, as you will see!  This is a region full of winemakers who are proud of their work and know how to communicate online even at the busiest time of year.

Les Caves de Trinques Fougasses have started visiting vineyards like Mas de Mortiès to talk shop about topics like harvest technique:

and more technical stuff like how this year’s concentrated small berry harvest will translate in terms of volume of finished wine.  Smaller fruit means a totally different liquid volume to solid volume ratio and you end up with much less wine per tank.  Also, there are crazy pockets of much more concentrated fruit that have started to dry out and they will be very sweet without much juice at all.

Some fun videos showing process at Mas de l’Ecriture with some very funny music choices:

And one video I took at Virgile Joly’s vineyard when I stayed at his new Vinolodge project which Ill tell you all about later!
Les vendanges sont en cour dans toutes parties du Languedoc Roussillon.  Je vous remerci pour votre patience avec mon absence durant cet periode tres occupée des vendanges.

J’ai pas beaucoup de temps pour faire des voyages ou des videos.  Par contre, je suis ravi de rassembler le travail d’autres vignerons de la région.

Voila le meilleur des Vendanges 2010 sur Internet.
