Grape harvest


Already begun the grape harvest, which called in Italy Vendemmia. Now on the roads near Brindisi you can sea small tractors with trailers full of grapes harvested.
On vacation, before going to the Alpes, we visited two famous grape valleys near Verona - Soave and Valpolicella. 


In the valley of Valpolicella make ​​famous vine Amarone, a bottle of which costs abou 40-50 euros. The grapes for Amarone after harvest in October, leaving another 120 days for wither. Vino Amarone has usually about 14°.


This summer vi visited some Wineries near Brindisi where we explained certain secrets of winemaking. For excample, you know that red wine is not made ​​from red grape? It's can be made as from white grape as from red grape. For make red wine during fermentation add skins of grape - It change the color and the taste.
