Hail in Trentino! Pojer e Sandri pictures . . . .

A freak hailstorm hit Pojer e Sandri vineyards a few days ago and here are some of the pictures.

Sadly, for many winegrowers, they lost their whole crop.  Luckily for Pojer e Sandri the damage wasn't that bad.

But can you imagine having these beasts fall on your vineyard?  To be a farmer, in any field, is to trust that mother nature will take your side.  But that also means that someone else might not be as lucky.

Thanks for the pictures, Federico Sandri, and we wish you guys all the best in the coming harvest.

Etna with Filippo of Ayunta . . .

Etna from the direction of Catania


One of the vineyards of Ayunta



Old, old vine

Rough place to grow grapes

You can see a turritto (spelling?) in the background of all the rocks that were taken out of this vineyard and stacked nearby



Better have your sturdy walking shoes . . . 



Ciao Filippo!
