2017 Harvest Reports


Another Terribly Short Crop at Maison Pierre Overnoy.

by Anne Houillon.

We are done with our harvest

80% of our land frosted on April 19th, so we were mentally prepared for another tiny year. Well, it's even LESS than we'd imagined. We started picking Ploussard on September 4th and were completely done by the 7th. A mere 3 days to pick 5.5 hectares; we'd get to the end of each row with a single bucket filled...

What we did pick was very good, and as always we were surrounded by a great team. The fermentations are off to a nice start, and the juices are tasting good. Now we will guard these like a new born babe!
