It's not a rock band. It's the harvest team. Or maybe they do that too. (Chateau Lapeyronie, Cotes de Castillon)

Chateau Lapeyronie is in the sub-appellation of Cotes de Castillon in the Bordeaux wine region. It is a smallish area with just under 3000 ha. The vines planted in the vineyards are mostly merlot, cabernet sauvignon and franc, and malbec grape varieties.
Chateau Lapeyronie is owned and run by Helene Lapeyronie, who is both winemaker and cellar master. It's a small vineyard with only some 2.5 ha of vines. She has acquired a solid reputation of making high quality wines in this otherwise rather unknown appellation. The winemaking is very hands on. A small team of harvest workers bring in the grapes. Harvest is manual - grapes are cut with secateurs. Grapes are crushed and then put in small stainless steel fermentation vats where fermentation and maceration takes place. This is followed by some time for the wine in oak barrel.
