Where in the wine world are we? Red and white edition

And we’re back with a “where in the wine world” photo! This photo is from harvest time, just last week somewhere in the wine world. But where was it? Feel free to show your powers of deduction for partial credit.

Further details to be revealed later…Send in your photo if you think you can stump us.

UPDATE: Yes, Martin nailed it! He must read Peter Liem’s fine blog, where I found this excellent photo and reproduced it with his permission. Check out his photos from Rene Geoffroy and more since he lives in Champagne!

  1. That picture is from Rene Geoffroy’s cellar in Ay in Champagne. 5 varieties cofermenting together! And they tell you Champers only has 3 legal grapes…

    The wine blogosphere is a lovely small world…

  2. Martin, You may be on to something….

  3. Yep that is a Champagne press alright. But wow a slightly suspicious and very impressive call on the producer Martin…
    I just wanted to keep the ellipsis trend going…

  4. And I thought there was only two grapes types in there purple and green err I mean red and white hah ^_^

  5. Somewhere in Central Michigan? or possibly Missouri? I give up…..arggghhhhh…..

  6. If Martin is correct, that is very impressive. I got the impression they were champagne grapes, but to identify the cellar–quite a sleuth!

  7. Champagne it is! I thought it was cool to see this co-fermentation. I updated the post to provide more details.
