2021 Harvest Experience
Program of the visit
Half day + Lunch

Dear friends, Dear wine lovers,

Have you ever dreamed about stepping into the shoes of a vine-grower for a day and explore the fascination of winemaking.

Harvest is the climax of a year of hard work in the vineyards, where it all begins. Months spent pruning, training, trimming, tilling. and caring. Months spent watching the sky, praying for rain or sun, and navigating the growing season.  

Harvesting is the art of capturing the bounty of the crop, protecting those months of diligent labor. We invite you to play a role in the 2021 harvest with Jean-Luc, vineyard manager at Château de la Crée.

"This vintage has involved a lot of action in the vineyards. Going out on April nights to protect the vines from frost, non-stop work in the spring to keep back the fast vegetative growth of the vines stimulated by heavy rainfalls.

We had to wait until the end of August to get some kinder weather. Since then, the conditions in the vineyards have much improved and the grapes are ripening nicely, taking us towards a harvest kick-off in mid-September."

Harvesting is the first act of vinification....
