Became picker for a day!

" Experience the harvest in the vineyards of Alsace and learn all the secrets of making wine. An unforgettable encounter with a winegrower from the region "

Enjoy a unique harvest experience in the heart of Alsace's vineyards! The harvest is the culmination of a year of work creating a prestigious product. The members of the Independent Winemakers of Alsace (Synvira) offer you the chance to experience the harvest in the heart of the Alsatian vineyard for a few hours. "A day in the life of a picker" is the type of authentic outing that our visitors are always asking for. This participatory experience is centered on discovery. It's a way to rethink the relationship between tourists and winemakers, while forging new connections, and reinventing the meaning of hospitality. It is a unique opportunity for tourists to share a genuine encounter with a winemaker. On the programme of these harvests for tourists: The winemaker welcomes everyone and explains the harvesting techniques (you'll get a harvesting kit with a pruner, brochures about Alsace wines, and educational information on the right way to harvest) - He, or she, will then take you to a plot of vines for 1 to 2 hours of harvesting - Back to the winery for a presentation of how grapes are made into wine - Wine tasting - Harvest meal (if meal option chosen) - At the end of the half-day, a "A day in the life of a picker" diploma will be presented to the participants.
