The Grape Harvest
Our grape harvest has just finished, and this year we had a bumper crop and here are a few photos to share. The bright sunlight casts so many dark shadows, but you will get an idea of what went on. Our grapes are made into wine on the property for our own consumption, (one glass a day, for me) and it is also sold locally. It is mostly made into a wine called green wine Vinho Verde, which is a very light dry wine, and can be either white or red.
The Vindimas/Grape Harvest, lasted thee days and a hearty meal was provided each day when the wine flowed freely, and much laughter and story telling went on in the company of old friends and neighbours.
