A couple of minutes on the sorting table

Grab a sécateur (gardening shears), put on a pair of gloves and prepare your eyes to sort out imperfect grapes.

Spent some time working the sorting table this year in Burgundy. An important year to have a sorting table (more details on why soon). Not as physical as the actual picking of the grapes, its a hypnotic job…. the grapes were still streaming in front of my eyes during my sleep.

    These are Pinot Noir grapes. Pinot Noir is the predominant grape variety in Burgundy.
