Combis is in full bloom and the orchard has been relieved of its first abundant harvest of the year. Our earlier cherries have long since been devoured, the first plums and peaches are now jam, and the barn is heaped up with apples looking forward to becoming cider. Pears clamour to join the fun as we practice our pressing and fermenting skills in readiness for the grape harvest, expected in late September. Chef de Parc Simon has played a blinder with the vines this year and all our fingers are tightly entwined. Especially his!
We are really looking forward to our first cuvée, and hope to share a glass with you all in the coming weeks and months!
