The many faces of harvest - well we finally did it - all the grapes are safely in so Fiona and her team can relax and the responsibility for the vintage passes over to Pete and his team at the winery.  Over the 14 days of harvest we picked over 80 tonnes of grapes.  A five star effort by all concerned  

Not that Fiona et al will be able to relax for long - the nets have to come off and general maintenance carried out before the long haul of winter pruning begins - then before we know it we are once more into a new growing season!!  

Central turned on a glorious day for the last day of harvest - crisp and clear first thing and warm by lunch time - the last of the Sauvignon Blanc came in by 11.30am and then it was time to relax over well deserved long lunch and a few wines.

The 2016 team (the only Kiwi is easy to spot!)

Putting the final touches to lunch (not just a fork lift and tractor driver but a chef as well!)

A long lunch!

Team Bretagne! 

Thanks once more to Fiona for the photos:
