Rijk's Harvesting Trellised Chenin Blanc

We mainly harvest at night or early mornings, before sunrise, as daytime temperatures in Tulbagh normally soar to about 35 - 40 degrees Celsius. It is firstly much better conditions for our harvesters to work under at night, when it is cooler. Once the workers get used to it, they actually prefer picking at night. Because they do such heavy physical work, the cooler temperatures also allow them to work for longer periods at a time and pick more tons.
