Countess Granville in Bordeaux - September, 1834
We passed the whole of yesterday with Mr. and Mrs. Barton, one of the daughters, at her campagne. […] We there saw the whole process of vendangerie—scenes like in a ballet. The men tread the grapes to music, but what a nasty process, all hands and feet!
