On Monday 24th September we have our first weekday harvest of the 2018 Solaris vintage at Chet vineyard in Bergh Apton. Please do join us - weather permitting - if you are free and bring secateurs and suitable sturdy footwear etc. We aim to start at 0900 and will pick til about 17:00. Join us whenever and forever long you are able to. We will provide tea/ coffee biscuits and cake. Do bring a picnic if you wish but soup and rolls will be provided. John is making a “family pasta supper” for the evening. 

 

Then our first weekend of harvesting the main crop of 2018 grapes at Chet Vineyard will be 29-30th September - again weather permitting. Please bring your family and friends plus your secateurs. We aim to start picking from 9am onward, then mid morning coffees and brunch are provided and mid afternoon tea and biscuits/cake. We hope to finish for the day around 5pm, when we head back to the winery to see how the winemaker is getting on with the processing and pressing. The volunteers will be able to enjoy some of last year's wines and socialise with your fellow pickers, whilst watching the wine making process. Then for those who wish to carry on the fun, evening food is provided, along with wine in our newly installed “Logis de Vendage” Please do let John or Bridget know if you are interested in taking part in the harvest and on which day(s), so we can cater.
