Due to the very high temperatures and lack of rain this summer, the grape harvest started just after the middle of August, more than 3 weeks in advance, and for this reason the grape harvest this year will be substituted by the BBQ in our country house.
There will also be the wine tasting at Muretti farm on Thursday so we can enjoy the smell of the grape must in the air.
GOURMET TOUR OF THE WEEK
Together with our guides, all our tours of the day will go to the Muretti farm restaurant where Lily and her family will be waiting to offer you a wine tasting of some their home-produced wines accompanied by local cut meats and cheeses and vegetables from their own garden. You will also visit their vineyard where you can try the traditional grape harvest technique…stomping grapes barefooted in the vat!
