The Wine

Wine grows in the field.
In daily work, from pruning shoots to tying. In coping with adversity, such as spring cold during the flowering phase, summer drought, and parasitic diseases. And then the dressing, the thinning out – one of the most delicate moments, because the smaller the number of bunches per plant, the higher the quality of the grapes, but throwing them away is always a bit of a disappointment after having worked so hard to get them to ripen in the best possible way – up to the choice of the best time to harvest the grapes, the hand-harvesting and the transportation of the grapes to the winery, where the complex process of vinification begins.
It is a demanding job, and a tiring one.
