Grape Harvest

Grape Harvest

I have recently realised that I never wrote a blog post about the vineyard harvest I took photo of during the year I documented a year on a vineyard. or as I called it, Life of a Grape!

So, better late the never, an September’s day in 2018 I was asked to come along to the vineyard and take photos of the harvest.

It was a nice day, but clouds were gathering, the team of volunteers having finished their tea and cakes got to work on harvesting. It was just one section of the vineyard that was being done that day, but there was plenty to do.

Grapes quickly filled their buckets, which in turn filled the crates…

These were then loaded on the the trailer to be brought into the barn…

and fed into the machines for de-stalking and then into large containers ready for the next stage..

The whole process was then repeated over and over again.

We managed to beat the weather and with the group of volunteers this section of the vineyard was harvested in just a few hours.

It was great to be able to witness this first hand to see and document the process for the vineyard. I then returned a few days later to document the pressing process.
