    Autumn Wine


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ALin77 photographed these lovely images of the Daum Weinburg vineyard in Dorsheim, Germany, on October 23. She was visiting a friend in the area when she happened upon the vineyard. 'The beauty was breath-taking and it was a fantastic coincidence that the farmer was out harvesting and I had a chance to chat with him,' she says. Her first image was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for December 19, 2012.
    - Jamescia, CNN iReport producer

    The vineyards are bursting with colors as the different varieties of grapes are ripe for harvesting in the Nahe Valley, Germany.

    White grapes are harvested between 7-9am daily in temperatures not exceeding 12C in order to maintain its sweetness while Red grapes are harvested only late evening after 5pm, preferably after a sunny day so that the grapes are nicely warmed by the sun to give its best flavors.

    Simply a spectacular sight as we walked through the vineyards sprawled across the slopes and plateaus overlooking the Nahe Valley and witnessed the farmers pick the grapes with their grape-picking tractors.
