Autumn is the time for grape harvesting and ever more often Indian summers.

Up until the end of October days are fine.

A warming wind from the south known as "foehn" comes to give the grapes their golden glow and nature adopts autumnal tints.

It's a time for picking chestnuts and eating them with a drop of Bourret, the first of the pressed grapes.

It's also the season for mushrooms to be picked on forest walks.
