Vendange is a collection of short stories about my time in the Haut-Medoc, France making the grape harvest during the years 1979-1986.

It was a time of great change when the great chateaux stopped employing hundreds of itinerant workers to using modern harvesting machines. One chateau moved from employing 350 grape pickers in 1979 to 12 people in 1980. Only the top chateaux still pick by hand to maintain the quality of their wine.

The experiences are moving, informative and funny.
