2009 Harvest at Favaro, Piemonte

La Famiglia Favaro

Le Chiusure. Notice the trellising in the vineyard? Pergola Veronese (arched over the heads of the pickers like they do in Verona). This provides for more air to circulate around the bunches of grapes so there is less opportunity for fungus and rot.

Erbaluce grapes ready for harvest. Erbaluce literally translated means "grass of light".

Everything is done by hand at Azienda Agricola Favaro.

Benito and Camillo Favaro hard at work during harvest.
