In late September and Early October, harvest season is in full swing in Tuscany and Umbria. Many of our friends are wine growers, and when they are ready to harvest their grapes, we get a phone call!
Once we get that call, we make some quick alterations to our schedule and head down to the vineyard.
We spend a morning with our guests at the vineyard harvesting the grapes (we try to harvest more than we eat), filling the baskets, and bringing them up to the winery. Once we have done so for an hour or two, we have the opportunity to get an in depth visit to a working winery during the wine making process. This is something our guests never forget!
We'll have lunch together, then we are on our way. We'll always bring a little of the "Must" (fermenting wine) with us, which we will then use in a spur of the moment dessert recipe at our next cooking class, of course
