Vendemmia With Edo: Picking Grapes In Chianti
In September 2011 I was lucky enough to be studying Italian in Umbria at the University for Foreigners in Perugia, just a two or three hour train ride from nearly anywhere in Tuscany. One lucky day I got an email from my friend Edoardo Dilaghi, owner of Allegretti, inviting me to help with the harvest. Here's a collection of images from that weekend, mixed with a few from an earlier trip to the vineyard.
It was a ton of fun and good hard work. We were all well rewarded with some incredible wines and amazing meals put together by Mama. Check out all of Allegretti's Organic wines here.
