The must-have machine this year (and 2011 and 2012) is the tri-optic sorting machine. The only problem with such a problematic year as this one it removes all the berries that are not the right shape, size or colour ie too many as this includes most of them!

The harvest started this week in a rush to get the Merlots in before the rains in the Medoc, St Emilion, Pomerol and the Graves region. Cabernets need to follow. Sunny weather predicted for next week.
