    Nice footage of girls harvesting grapes on the banks of the Rhine.

  • Description

    Grape harvest in Germany (German titles: 'Weinlese am deutschen Rhein'.)

    Looking across Rhine River at tiered vineyards on hill. Ruins of medieval castle on hilltop. Girls (teenagers or young women in their 20's) picking grapes; all wear kerchiefs. Young man w/ backpack comes walking down the steep hill; flirtingly pats girl on cheek as he walks past; and she grins; town in valley in BG. Shot w/ castle / fortress tower in FG; shot looking over vineyards; w/ buildings; maybe from winemaker's.

    More of girl grape pickers. CU girls acting silly; dangling bunches of grapes over their mouths. Scenic view looking out across vineyards; mountains.

    Agriculture; alcohol; fruit; romance.
