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.
Next weekend Monte da Casteleja is going to Lisbon to the National Fair of Organic Farming – Terra Sã Lisboa 2015 (5 and 6 of December), Pátio da Galé, in Terreiro do Paço.
This year the fair is dedicated to the theme “Grow Green – The New Farmers” and features a packed program of activities, with different workshops for children and adults, lectures on organic farming and healthy Food, and music. See the program online (.pdf in portuguese)
