2011 Harvest Photos

These are some of my favorite 2011 harvest photos from around the Languedoc Roussillon.  In no particular order.  Each photo links to the original site where you can find much more content.  I encourage you to go and visit the region’s wonderful winemaking bloggers. And of course check out the fuller list of harvest updates I posted earlier or photos from 2010 harvest.

Spring Vineyard Pictures

Vineyards around the Languedoc Roussillon are posting beautiful pictures that showcase that special spring time mood when life returns to the vines and wild flowers of the region.

Here are a few of my favorite photos with links to the original winemaker blog that posted them.

But spring also has its hardships.  March and April showers can cause a lot of problems.

And on Easter Sunday, the Corbieres was hit with a terrifying hail storm that has devastated certain parcels.   I don’t know of any winemakers who are posting photos yet (they’re surely busy sending said photos to their insurance companies!), but here’s an article from La Vigne that includes a photo of the damage.
