Grape harvests 2012

We watch very carefully for more than three weeks the maturity of our grapes. In September ends on a succession of beautiful warm and sunny days and fresh nights. Our grapes finally reach maturity after the welcome rainy sequences of this week. The date of the grape harvest at Château La Croix Martelle is fixed from now on September 22nd and should end by October 3rd.

Harvest of wild fruits in the Domain

The fig tree (ficus carica), rustic as the olive tree, found for a long time its place on borders and in the vines of La Croix Martelle. It is in this period of the summer end that we collect figs and wild almonds.The almond trees and fig trees are the witnesses of a biodiversity protected for several centuries and linked to the vines.

The countdown began

At this beginning of August, the middle-veraison is now affected. An important date which indicates to us that the grape harvests should not begin before the end of the month of September.
