From September to October (some years earlier in August), you can participate in the wine grape harvests in the Hautes Vosges d’Alsace.
The vineyards are in the towns of Thann, Vieux-Thann, Steinbach, Uffholtz and Wattwiller, where around twenty wine-producers practice their art.
The most spectacular vineyards are in Thann; the grape pickers are harnessed to collect the grapes on a 45° slope.
Most of these exceptional quality wines have lower yields than elsewhere.
