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?
