Bauduc 2011 White Harvest in Pictures

With the growing season almost three weeks ahead of last year, the harvest of our white grapes at Château Bauduc kicked off at the end of August. It wasn’t the easiest vintage, as we had four months of near-drought from March to early July and a tad too much rain from mid-July to the beginning of September. The summer was cool overall but at times it was very humid, which caused problems. In the end, after getting hands-on in the vines to sort the grapes, we’re pretty pleased with the result.

Here’s the story of the white harvest in photos. Click on an image to enlarge it.

Update, Summer 2012: if you’re in the UK and would like to sample the fruits of our labour, you can order the wine here.

    So did you get up early or just stay up late watching re-runs of Chelsea? (Question to Gavin. I think I know Angie's answer)
