Summer’s here! Sun, Sun and Wine…

 

Capture meteo

Last minute vacation in the South of France? Suze-La-Rousse is the place to be! Not a cloud in the sky for the next 10 days.

Lots of nice B&B’s here, markets, festivals, concerts and wine tastings! Everything you can dream of for a nice holiday.

Some informative websites for planning your perfect Provence holiday:

– Festival d’Avignon

Meanwhile in the vineyards we are in the ‘Berries beginning to touch’ stage on the BBCH-scale. The flowering season has ended well for the LePlan Vineyard and the grapes are well formed. Ahahah, I love this season as much as I hate it… The harvest is looking very promising at this stage, but still approximately 80 days to go before the grapes enter our cellar. And summer is such a challenging season. It will make or break our wine year… Keep (y)our fingers crossed!

The above picture shows a Syrah grape from one of our young vines. As you can clearly see, Syrah grapes tend to be long and slender.
