In September we are summoned to the Verdicchio harvest
12, 19 and 26 September, when the vineyards begin to change colour, are filled with sweet smells and offer up ripe grapes as proof of the land's fertility.
Experience the grape harvest first-hand. You can witness grapes being pressed bare-foot inside traditional vats and enjoy a day in the countryside among the grapevines and in the winery, surrounded by a marvellous view with mountain air and sea breezes. VerdicchiAMO is the discovery of life in the country through its smells, flavours and the tales told by those who for generations have passionately devoted their lives to wine and Verdicchio grapes. A whole day dedicated to wine: its birth, vinification and tasting. Harvesting with the members, lunch among the vines, pressing the wine barefoot in vats from the 1930s and a visit to the winery to witness the various stages in wine-making and taste some of the best Colonnara wines.
