The Harvest

HARVEST   


Mid-September to mid-October

Vendanges à la mainHarvesting can begin as soon as the grapes have reached maturity (balance between sugar and acidity). In general, the harvest starts in mid-September and ends around mid-October.






Machine à vendangerA few growers continue to harvest by hand (mainly the young vines), but mechanical harvesting is almost universal in the Cognac region.
