An eye on grapevines in September

The vineyard has become colourful. Its leaves show us that the days have a bit shortened, cool to cold night temperatures are the regular and mornings may come with dew.

We have arrived in autumn, dear readers, and the grapes are almost ready to be picked. Mid-September is the time many winegrowers start harvesting their grapes. On the vineyard we have an eye on since February, it will only take place in October. That means, we can enjoy this bountiful crop a little longer.

Have you missed this series so far? Read all posts by clicking on each month to wonder at the changing of the seasons in an organic vineyard in Switzerland. February, MarchApril, May, June, July, August.
