It is now the last week of August and the grape harvest and wine-making beckon. The Agriturismo doesn’t close this year until Sunday 14 September but the summer has been hot and the grapes matured early so we will begin harvesting probably late during the first week of September.
All winter we look forward to the coming season of the Agriturismo/Farm-Stay (also with some trepidation) that it seems amazing to be already almost at the end. This last week of August the house is occupied by a Girls Volleyball training camp. It constitutes a clear break between the summer season in the Agriturismo full of movement and kids and the quieter end-of-season in September with guests choosing to holiday when things are calmer and quieter.
