Harvest 2019 at Château Cicéron in Corbières Appellation

Well before the sun emerges on the horizon, grape pickers are already walking up and down the rows of vines. It is chilly. The Verdejo grapes will be harvested quickly to protect them from the heat – September 2019 is still hot. The clusters are picked by hand and placed in crates to avoid crushing them. In one short morning, the grapes are pressed and put into tanks in the winery.
