Winemaking & the Villa

So how lucky were we that the week we ended up being at the villa was the exact week that the family picked the grapes and made the wine! Us being the ultra tourist asked if we could help and naturally accepting free labor they were very excited to have the assistance. So Cierra and I pretty much spent all day yesterday learning how to properly pick the grapes and prepare the wine. We were making a chardonay.

In the field with the shears hard at work.

Cierra with her collection. Look at that smile. Does she look happy or what?

Luciano, the dad pressing the grapes after the collection. We got to help with the entire process, real cool!

Marco, their son with Padlo, one of the sheep.

And finally Laura, the mom working with us in the fields earlier in the day.
