After a mild spring and a very hot and dry summer, it is almost time for the harvest in the vineyard. These will officially begin on September 7 for 4 to 5 weeks of harvest.

We will certainly have quantity and quality this year.

During the harvest we invite you to:

Please note that we do not currently offer tastings. The experience of our customers, visitors and friends has always been at the heart of our priorities. Given the current circumstances, we are unable to provide a pleasant tasting experience for you and our dedicated staff. However, you can buy a bottle of wine at the boutique and enjoy it outside on one of the picnic tables on site.
