Vendange Time

The vendange (vintage) is the annual wine harvest, when the grapes are picked from the vines. It’s usually done around late September or early October, the exact time depending on meteorological vagaries.

The 2021 vintage is probably going to be a shocker because of the awful weather we’ve had this year. However, this image, from a chateau in the Bordeaux region, harks back to a more promising time.
