the harvest continues…


But 30 minutes from my house in the Bielersee vineyards – Switzerland – a very nice day for it!

There are approaching 50 different varieties grown on the terraces above Lake Biel (Lac du Bienne) but it seemed that the pinot and chasselas were the ones being harvested yesterday.

We also took a trip up the the Chasseral – the highest point in the Swiss Jura at 1,609m – the restaurant up there is unremarkable, rather like a modest place in a ski resort, but the views were cool! The tower is mainly a radio and TV relay for Swisscom, 120 metres tall and (this version) built in 1983…

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
