Harvest at Monte da Casteleja 2016

Posted on

Another year and another harvest at Monte da Casteleja!

On this 13th edition we kept of course the “old-fashioned way” of picking and treading the grapes.

After a demanding morning of non-stop picking, everyone was invited for the traditional long and joyfull lunch. At the end of the day, the emotions reached a peak when , inside the cellar, everyone was dancing and treading the grapes, motivated by the dynamic music the dj was selecting.

We are truly grateful to this group of brave people from various countries, full of positive energy that helped us to produce a unique wine… that you will be able to savour some months from now.

Another big party on Monte da Casteleja, with the completion of the 12th Harvest.

Sharing unique moments of joy…. and a lot of sweat to the mix ….

Many thanks to all participants, friends from Associação Nossa Terra, Mercearia Bio (not forgetting the brave Nuno), the Afpop, the Volta do Mar and many other comrades ….

A very special thanks to my children and colleagues, Susana, Tiago, the cook Carla and woofer Marta, for the precious help in organizing and preparing this important event.

The grapes were harvested at the right time and the wine is fermenting in the cellar; expectations for this crop are running high!
