When the vines are colored
In the middle of October, when the harvest is over, the vines gradually change color. Depending on the different grape varieties, the leaves are adorned with various colors, ranging from yellow-green to dark red, forming a rich palette of warm tones.
At the bend of the paths, a few strawberry trees complete the picture with their red or orange fruits, pretty little balls hanging in the middle of the bright green foliage. These fruits, called arbutus, are edible. Some eat them as they are or make jam or jelly out of them.
