Vendemmia…time to pick grapes

All over Italy grapes are ripening on the vines. My friends invited me to help pick their grapes to make wine. I happily agreed.

The setting of the vineyard is lovely and it was a gorgeous day.

Time for lunch…with some of last year’s wine.

Thank you for inviting me to be part of the day, it was fun and I look forward to sampling the wine when it is ready.

  1. I have always longed to be in Italy during this time since I have known about graoe picking and olive harvesting. I hope someday I can be a part of it .. What a fun day!

  2. Pecorino ,Fresh bread, red wine, a lovely autumn day in a vineyard with friends; what else could one ask for ! Cheers or should I say salute.It seems strange that your picking grapes and we are just starting with bud burst.

  3. I think there are a lot of people about who would happily volunteer for grape-picking duty,
    particularly if there’s a good lunch in it!
