Grape Harvest in Retzerland

The grape harvest is in full swing now, and tractors carrying grapes are a common sight on the roads around here. While most of the larger vintners make their own wine and therfore press their grapes in the wine cellars at home, many of the smaller places sell their grapes at a central location. And after a day in the fields a little gossip shared is a welcome thing.
