|Pinot Noir ready to be picked|
It’s a tough time. Long, stressful hours trying to coordinate the picking, the delivery, the pressing and fermentation of the grapes. It can be a big problem if there’s too much rain, or not enough, and there’s the annual challenge of pulling together a team of vintage workers from all corners of the globe.

|Some final product|
Think of me at the end of harvest party tomorrow when we all get together to celebrate the end of another "vintage" and a job well done. It won't be a big night for me though - I have a book to finish. Maybe I'll have my own "book vintage" party then!
Have you visited a winery to see how it’s made or to taste the product? Or a chocolate factory perhaps?
