Harvest Time

Totally not stamp related but thought you all may like to see these photos I took a couple of weeks ago its currently Harvest time in our Vineyard .
Sorry the photos are not the best quality but it is about 6.15 in the evening & they have just started to pick the Chardonay variety, they have to pick early evening or before dawn because the white grapes need to be at the winemakers before they start to ferment which happens faster as the temperature rises, this is also why we use the harvest machine. All the Red Varieties are hand picked during the day as they are a little more forgving.
