Nostra Vendemmia 2007

A years work in the fields has come to an end again. To be honest, someone else’s hard work has ended, Antonello’s father to be exact. Sunday morning, the family all gathered to make the vendemmia, the collecting of the grapes. Throughout the year, each family enjoys the homemade wine this harvest provides.

The grapes are broken through this grinder to let out all their juices. Soon they will be pressed, separating the juice from the pulp and stems, leaving the juice to start its fermentation.

We will wait for November for when we taste this must that has changed into a thin wine.

Hmm, child labor? :)
