Cloesup photos are a great thing: here come 14 pictures of a vineyard in Charente, France.
We decided to take these close ups – to really see, very closely. Let’s start with a Cognac XO from Maine Giraud:
And here you see the wood of a 20 year old “pied de vigne” in a Cognac vineyard.
This photo was taken much earlier in the year: freshly cut branches.
Typical chalky, rough terroir (soil) of Cognac, Charente.
A leave is struggling with health…
And another strange leave..
The full grapes..
… hanging from the vignes.
In order to have a stable vineyard, the bois needs to be strengthened.
.. by wood on the sides.
All kind of friends are on the ground – also look at the limestone..
So it can also happen that some leaves and plants totally give up…
.. others are fresh and green, full of energy..
Here a machine I found not far away from a field. Rustic.
Hope you like our little close-up collection, feel free to comment.
