It’s Grape Harvest time – let’s make some wine

Posted By : Maria Florio/ 420

It’s Grape Harvest time, that is what the experts say.

We know for sure that Autumn is the season for tasty grapes, and that fine harvest comes together when summer is over, but Grape harvest doesn’t happen on the same days or the same week every year.  Do you know why?

Mother earth responds differently every year, according to the summer season; if it has been too sunny or not, if it has rained too much.  For these reasons and others related to the weather over the summer months, grape harvest time has never had an exact date and/or time; and the same goes for every wine production location. In the Campania region there are a few renown areas for wine and winemaking, such as the hills and valleys of the Irpinia area.

This territory is centred on the section of Apennines, it is very well known for the production of wines like Greco di Tufo, Taurasi and Fiano di Avellino; which are also top wines of the Campania region.

The colour of this area shifts between a mixure of green, golden light brown and purple; all colors that recall the gentle warmth of Autumn. Getting close to the cold season, people instinctively gain this sense of desire to reunite and come together; and find the time to do some outdoor activities with each other. Picking grapes and turning them into wine is one of these activities, an activity that we find fascinating and want to participate in, at least once in a life time.

So, let’s all go and let’s do La Vendemmia; let’s get close to our mother earth that nourishes us with one of her final beauties and tasty flavoured fruits before going to rest during the winter months, a time of hibernation for nature, both plants and animals alike.
