    "Vindimas" - Grapes harvesting

    by solopes Updated Dec 27, 2013

    Some agricultural works are, in our tradition, a landmark in people's cooperation, becoming a pretext to popular parties.

    "Descamisada ou desfolhada" - pealing the ears of corn, was quite a celebration, sometimes recreated for cultural purposes.

    Olives harvesting always ended in the "Adiafa" , drinking and singing.

    "Vindima" is a wide concept that starts picking the grapes, transporting them to the "lagar", and ends treading the grapes.

    Ribatejo still produces lots of wine, and Vindimas are a living tradition. (In Porto, some touristic operators are already preparing trips where the tourists pay to "join the party").

    My friend Emanuel invited us to his "vindima". Well, I must confess... the first time, to the lunch and amazing afternoon.

    What a great day, in a sunny warm Sunday of Fall, in Arrouquelas,with friends, in the nature.

    Vindimas at Arrouquelas are becoming a regular event for us. If you want to join us just let me know - the vineyards grew, and the Vindimas in 2013 were extended for three weeks in September (a few VTers from Canada and Germany joined us and a few Norwegian in the party.

    Check VT meetings for September 2014, if you want to join the group.
