A throwback to harvest 2020 at Château de Bellet
“There is a very strong link between the bottle, the place, the time and the people you’re tasting it with.” Eric Revel
The hilltop vineyard Château de Bellet is glad to share with you an overview of the 2020 harvest. After 3 intense weeks in the vineyards, the vinification is already well underway.
The year 2020 was a good year for the wines of Bellet both qualitatively and quantitatively.
All AOP winegrowers were unanimous in saying that an adaptation to climate change is necessary. Some observations have been noted this year including heterogeneous maturities, early picking for certain grape varieties as well as an early termination of the harvest compared to the previous years.
At Château de Bellet, our team of experienced pickers meticulously harvest the most beautiful bunches of grapes to continue to follow our path towards quality production. Here, the harvests are carried out in a traditional way and in a joyful and cheerful atmosphere. Learn more about the winery.
For our young winegrower, Sandro, it is the best time of the year, shared with a close-knit team. The whole team of the estate finds the 2020 vintage very promising and full of freshness. Learn more about our wines.
