We picked the grapes of our „High Densitiy“ Viognier vineyard (Domaine de l’Arjolle – Côtes de Thongue) at the end of August. This vineyard has been planted with some 8000 vines per hectare (instead of 5000 vines per hectare, more usual in southern France). The picking was done by hand, and in a convivial atmosphere... like every year.
