The harvest 2014 for the Ventoux appellation took place mainly in the month of September over a relatively short period of time. They were marked by some rainy periods and relatively warm temperatures. The grapes were thus harvested during the cooler hours to retain maximum flavour. Harvest volumes were up compared to 2013 with good quality grapes and a great aromatic palette.
