2016/09 Harvest at Château La Coucharde

Vendanges à Ch. La Coucharde, septembre 2016

In september, we visited château La Coucharde in the "entre-deux-mers" region with the photo club OPPV to take part (photographically) in the 2016 harvest.  The light was not wonderful when we first arrived in the mid morning but by lunchtime we had reasonable autumn light which enabled us to take some good shots.

We were very well received by the proprietors, Monsieur Bielle Navarre, his son and their wives, who laid on a splendid harvest lunch for us.  Their vintage '95 is exceptional !!  Once again our grateful thanks. 

The day ended with a group photo of the whole crew among the vines and by loading our cars with quite a few cases of château La Coucharde...
