2017 Grape Harvest at Château Montrose
A redesigned vat room and a larger group of pickers
100 inhabitants of Pruna (Spain) leave their village to harvest Montrose
The way in which a property manages its harvest is part of its DNA, and this is especially true when choosing its troop of pickers and the perfect knowledge they have of the vineyard. Committed to rigorous and precise manual know-how, combining the traditional working methods of the property with the latest techniques, Château Montrose has been faithful for 33 years to its troop of professional grape pickers, who come each year from a village in the south of Spain (Pruna). Long composed of about sixty pickers, the size of the troop was increased to 90 in 2016. In 2017, around a hundred have moved in to the harvest village set up at the property.
