Participating in the grape harvest is a treasured tradition, bringing friends together in the vineyard for a day of hard work, laughs, great food, and the end reward of good wine after its crushed, fermented and aged. We love being included in our friends’ annual vendemmia of aglianico here in Basilicata Italy.
