Harvest of 2017 vintage


Picking of the first Gamay grapes is due to start at the beginning of next week in the earlier ripening areas

This year the grapes are ready early, and the weather still just as dry in Beaujolais.

The official start to vintage has been fixed as Monday 28 August for the earlier ripening parcels.  This official date is a minimum, given as an indication, after which each producer determines their own harvest date, according to the parcels or the style of wine they are looking for.
