Harvest with us! 29.09.2023
Do you want to live a unique cultural and recreational experience? Join us at the "Harvest with us!" day event, dedicated to the experience of harvesting and pressing the grapes to obtain the must. A journey from the bunch to the wine for adults... and, for the kids, an educational activity that starts in the countryside and ends with the grape juice that they can take home as a souvenir of an unforgettable day.
We will leave at 10.00 am from Verona, to reach the Azienda Agricola Fugolo Gianluca, where all the day's activities will take place. Once you arrive at the vineyard, you will be taught how to recognize the best grapes and how to harvest them. Armed with scissors and crates, you will proceed with the harvest, and in the meantime you can be told about all the traditions of Valpolicella and the company. Once the harvest is over, it's time for pressing! We will press the grapes together in front of the vineyard with the ancient techniques through a manual press (or for those who want with our feet!).
Notice: FOR THIS TOUR IS PREFERABLE TO WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES AND CLOTHES YOU ARE NOT AFRAID OF GETTING DIRTY!
After so much effort it's time to rest: a tasting-aperitif followed by a picnic in the vineyard awaits you, obviously accompanied by Fugolo Gianluca wines. And finally... grape ice cream for everyone!
