Grape Harvest in Alsace

The harvest normally takes place between late September and late October. The dates vary according to the ripening of the grapes. The joyful exuberance of the grape pickers, the rich colors of the vineyards and forests in the warm autumnal sunlight, give an added, fascinating charm to this season when nature surrenders its most noble fruits. At harvest time, it’s best to organize a visit well in advance, especially when visitors want to participate to the harvest!
