la vendange

Last week saw our neighbours grape harvest come to an end for this year.

It was the first time I have participated in a French vendange.  Hard work (all that bending and scrunching into weird postures to make sure you get every grape), but a lot of fun also.

We picked red and white grapes.  Jean will turn them into wine - or more likely they will end up as Pineau, a local speciality.

I took home some of each and made grape jelly....... well, what else do you expect from me?
