‘Green harvesting’, trellising and effeuillage with Gavin Quinney

Video Wine Regions

In this series of videos, Gavin Quinney (the English owner of Chateau Bauduc) discusses wines and winemaking in Bordeaux.

Here Gavins discusses ‘green harvesting’, why he ‘de-leafs’ his vines (effeuillage is a far prettier word) and how and why he trellises the vines.

I became captivated with the world of wine whilst on a visit to the Barossa Valley during my gap year in Australia. I went on to join a London wine merchant and studied wine for several years before starting my own wine business at 24. I sold the business aged 30 and went into Telecoms for 15 years, during which time I began cooking up the plan to create Mirabeau.
