Harvest at Domaine du Breuil

Historically in the Beaujolais, the grapes are harvested by hand.
 

Every year for the harvest, we employ about thirty young people, mostly students, for a period of 15 days. The pickers are fed and housed in our accomodation near our vineyard.

One must be careful to harvest : only mature grapes must be harvested. The rule here is "we only harvest what we would like to eat  greedly".
