Harvest Time at Corneilla

Harvest Time at Corneilla

Last Monday and Tuesday saw Gavin in France to oversee our very first harvest at Château de Corneilla, working in the vineyard alongside William Jonqueres d’Oriola from the estate. To ensure that all of the grapes reached London in the best possible condition they were hand harvested, sorted and then loaded into large flat crates for their 820 mile journey to the winery.

Not many families have history that can match up to that of the Jonquères d’Oriola family – the owners of Chateau de Corneilla, in the Roussillon village of Corneilla-del-Vercol. The estate has been in the family since they bought it in the 1400s following the dissolution of the Knights Templar.
