Vineyard cabins in the Beaujolais region are called "cadoles"; ranging from simple shelters to more complex constructions, they provide shelter and a place to keep tools.

Work on the vineyard in winter

As the vine enters into a period of dormancy, with the sap no longer circulating, this is the ideal time for pruning.

From November to March, the winegrower uses secateurs to cut off the old vine shoots from the previous year.

Pruning is long and painstaking work that has to be done every year, by hand, one vine at a time. This is also the time to till and plough the fields.

Wells can be found in hamlets (if they are communal) or on private property. The "bâchasses", or cisterns, are water reserves on the vineyard, often surrounded by walls or simply covered with a slab.
