Vendemmia – Grape harverst – Bellaugello: Luxury gay bed and breakfast near Perugia, Umbria, Italy
Vendemmia – Grape harverst

An early morning message announced tomorrow is the day that my neighbours here in Valdichiascio are starting their grape harvest.  A short SMS requesting help, I replied in the affirmative, and now as the guys slowly amble down to breakfast here at Bellaugello Gay Guest House, I too am asking if they want to come and join in the vendemmia.

It is a time for community, friendship, story telling, memories and sharing.  Grapes are picked by hand slowly down the rows and then carried in panniers on the back of Martino’s fine white Carmargue horse through the woodland and pastures to the ancient beam press
