A cheeky little vintage crime

September 30th, 2010 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

According to the Guardian, thieves stole a French winegrower’s entire harvest – 30 tonnes of grapes over 2 hectares.   A few thoughts:

  • How do winegrowers survive if their entire harvest, a whole year’s work, is only worth £13,000?
  • How much do grape-harvesting machines cost?  Presumably this bloke has one for his own harvest and it sits in a barn for 364 days a year, if his entire crop can be picked in just a few hours.
  • “The harvest was not insured against theft.”  Can you insure a whole 2 hectares of crops against theft?  (I bet you can now anyway)
