Hotte

Hotte

Once the grapes have been hand picked or cut and placed in buckets the heavy lifters come by with a large container on their backs called a “Hotte” and collect the grapes ready to be taken to a tractor-trailer ready for transporting to the winery.

Outstanding photo: warm, golden color and the central activity is so interesting.

Very good series on the 'vendanges'! This shot is the best of all, I love the golden light. What were you doing there, just taking pictures, buying wine or actually working?

I was working taking photographs. Working picking grapes is way too hard for me!

Thanks all for your comments.
