  SATURDAY 5TH AND SUNDAY 6TH FEBRUARY 2011 At Môreson we believe that wine is about 3 things; passion, love and magic. It’s what we put into everything we do, into every bottle of wine we make and it’s what makes our annual Blessing of the Harvest an event not to be missed. In 2011, on Saturday the 5th or Sunday the 6th of February, come and join us and delight in making wine the old fashioned way. Handpick your own basket of grapes and then press them using your feet, which are, incidentally, the oldest wine making tools in the business. As you’ll soon discover wine making is a tiring job. This is why we insist that you join us for a special feast at Bread & Wine, our famous farm restaurant,
