Home for a week: my trip so far.

“I saw my first ever vine (which is weird considering how much I drink from what they produce)”

LE GRAPE ESCAPE

It’s my niece’s birthday and Mayweather is fighting MacGregor and I wanted to surprise my mum because I’ll be doing harvest over her birthday.

Jobs for the week: get on with revising for my wine theory resit in December, detail what I’m doing when I head back to France, not get too drunk when I watch the Mayweather fight. Or revise and detail, anyway.

Also I need to take in how cool that was, digest it and get my head straight for harvest.

I saw my first ever vine (which is weird considering how much I drink from what they produce), worked on my first vineyard, drove my first tractor, visited three first-growth, drank wine directly from a tank taller than me and bought wine out of a bloody petrol-pump. I drove through three wine regions, discovered countless new appellations, published 17 blogs, travelled 1300 miles and built a swing.

I’m off. Revision to do and three harvests to plan.

After the break: a sore back and my first vintage. The 2017.
