Good Harvest


As each tractor load of grapes come into the winery the trailer is weighed in and then once the grapes are off-loaded the trailer is weighed out, the difference is the amount of grapes that have been added to each persons account.

A great number of grape producing areas are made up of cooperatives of small individual producers who at the end of the grape harvest "Les Vendanges" know how much wine they will have 'on account' for sale also through the cooperative.
