Grape harvester for a day - Domaine Michelas Saint-Jemms
This is an authentic experience and an unmissable opportunity to explore the estate, from the vine to the winery. Come and see what's it's like to be a grape harvester for a day! An experience organised by independent winegrowers and classified a 'Remarkable Experience' by the Valley of Gastronomy.
Come to the estate when the sun comes up, at 7:30am. You'll be served a cup of coffee as you listen to a quick briefing of what to expect, then you'll set off for the harvest. At around 9am, you'll stop for a break and then head back to the estate at around 11am to bring the grapes back and store them in a cool place.
Then you'll be taken on a tour of the winery, the barrel storehouse and you'll learn all about our winemaking and growing techniques. Then of course, there's a wine tasting with commentary to find out about our appellations.
At lunchtime, you'll continue your experience of the estate.
At the end of the experience, you'll be given a certificate as a souvenir of this great day.
