Wine tourism at all seasons of the year is a rewarding and enriching experience. If you also enjoy it in September you will find an additional bonus: the grape harvest.
In September and October, the wineries experience their most important and significant time of the year with the harvesting of the grapes in the vineyards and their subsequent reception at the winery.
Visitors who come during this season will not only be able to visit the facilities, walk through the vineyard or taste the wines, but will also have the privilege of witnessing first-hand some of the most important stages of the winemaking process.
In addition to the grape harvest, here are some additional benefits of enjoying wine tourism during this special period for our wineries:
After the holidays and the long summer evenings, the return to routine can sometimes be a little difficult. A weekend getaway to a wine tourism destination can be the perfect way to escape and relax.
The end of summer is marked by the drop in temperatures, which makes any excursion or outdoor activity in a natural environment such as the one in which our wineries are located more appealing.
The wineries and vineyards allow us to enjoy an endless number of activities related to the world of wine: guided tours, grape tasting, tasting of the first must, wine tasting, wine pairings, picnics, events… something that is accentuated during the harvest time.
The harvest is experienced with all five senses: the smell of fresh fruit and must fermenting in the wineries, seeing the countryside full of life with the grape harvest and the beginning of the change of color of the leaves with autumn, tasting the different grape varieties from the vine and of course, the final wine tasting reflecting all the dedicated work.
Tradition and passion in its purest form, which is only experienced once a year, making it an unrepeatable experience. Each harvest is unique.
