September 2007:

Yes, the highest point of the year finally started: we are harvesting since September 7th!!
Our team of pickers is almost the same than last year: they are all happy to come again.

The first grapes picked were Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois and Chardonnay for our Crémant d'Alsace. Even if the official opening in Alsace was on August 22nd, we considered that grapes needed to have a further ripeness.

The harvest for the still wines is done by sequences, each grape variety being ripe successively. Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois, some Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris have been picked, and the mosts already ferment in our winery.
