A lovely country morning in Valdichiascio

After breakfast on the terrace here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House we headed off to Pratale farm where we spent Friday morning in the company of friends, some old some new, but all there for the same pleasurable task, rapidly going down the rows of ripe vines picking luscious bunches of deep rosy grapes – the Vendemmia

It was a beautiful morning, warm sun, ripe grapes, great company, gentle exercise and helping friends in picking fruit that I know I will end up enjoying as Martino makes his fine organic chemical free red wine from the grapes.

and a big thanks to Etain and Noah for a delicious lunch – all home grown produce, scrumptious!
