Wine Harvest

All week there was a buzz of activity around the house : the annual wine harvest.
After the white grapes - two weeks ago - this time it is the red malbec grapes that are harvested.

Because of some rainy days in the middle of the week the winegrowers had to work sometimes also during the evening and the night to gather in the grapes.

The last days were lovely : temperatures during the day around 28° C which enabled us to take the evening meal (table d'hôtes) outside - not bad for the beginning of october.
The only pity is that regional dishes like this are no longer possible : the melon season is over.

To end with : some nice pictures of daybreaks - or are these sunsets?
