Harvest weekend 2017 dancing in the time of frost

Extra peps thanks to frost? Or sparkling rosé?

Harvest weekend 2017 started innocently enough with light drizzle and flashy rain gear.  What led to the transformation of the Lion D’Or, a very traditional French restaurant into a wild dance floor; a pop-up nightclub in sleepy Saussignac? Was it extra energy from less picking thanks to the frost? Or the new sparkling rosé? Or all down to Anne-Marie and Ethan’s collaboration on fab dance music? (including Abba yeah!)

And a little picnicking (overseen by Ace Team Maeve, Brigit, Sylvia, Chiara, Sophia and Ellie)


And a little pontificating (can’t keep those Feelys quiet for long)

And some fine dining
