A Grape View: One of the most exciting days for a winemaker is the first day of harvest when they taste the freshly squeezed juice. I captured this image in Chateau des Ganfards, Saussignac, Bergerac, France, where I work as a winemaker and viticulturist since 2018. The summer of 2020 was hot and dry, and the grapes were fantastic. On the 26th of August, we harvested the first grapes for our white wines. It was a chilly morning. At 7 am, I prepared the press to receive the fruit. Then, I went down to the vineyards to look at the collection and to make some photographs. The sun was rising at the time I arrived. The sky was pink, and the harvesting machine was coming to unload the grapes. So, I jumped on the back of the trailer, and I prepared my camera. I was lucky enough a ray of the sun was illuminating the spot where the grapes were gracefully falling into the trailer, along with Jean Claude Géraud driving the tractor in the backdrop.
