It's Harvest Time!

The much anticipated 2011 Harvest is finally under way.

Despite forecasts of an ultra-early start to the harvest after exceptionally warm weather in April, a spell of cool weather in July and early August meant that the start date was pushed back quite a bit and most villages are not getting going until the last week of August - still earlier than usual, but not quite as dramatically early as was once thought.

The My Man in Champagne will be out in the vineyards on a daily basis to bring you the latest news and updates from the heart of Champagne so stay tuned.

Here's a quick video to give you a flavour of what's in store
