Wine tourism at any time of the year is a rewarding and enriching experience. If you also enjoy it in the month of September you will find an additional bonus:
the grape harvest.
In September and October, the wineries experience one of their most important and significant periods of the year with the harvesting of the grapes in the vineyard and their subsequent reception at the winery.
Visitors who come during this season will not only visit the facilities, walk through the vineyard or taste the wines, but also have the privilege of witnessing first-hand some of the most important stages of the winemaking process.
In addition to the grape harvest, we reveal some additional benefits of enjoying wine tourism during this special period for our wineries:
The perfect plan to cope with the return to routine
After the vacations and the long summer evenings, getting back to the routine can sometimes be a bit difficult. A weekend getaway to a wine tourism destination can be the solution to escape and relax.
Goodbye to high temperatures
The end of summer is marked by the drop in temperatures, which makes any trip or outdoor activity in a natural environment such as the one in which our wineries are located more appealing.
The wineries are full of life
The wineries and vineyards allow us to enjoy an endless number of activities related to the world of wine: guided tours, grape tastings, tasting of the first must, wine tastings, wine pairings, picnics, events… something that is accentuated during the harvest season.
The grape harvest is lived with the five sensesThe smell of fresh fruit and must fermenting in the cellars, seeing the countryside full of life with the grape harvest and the changing color of the leaves in autumn, tasting the different varieties of grapes from the vine and the final wine tasting, a reflection of the work done with dedication and care.
Tradition and passion in its purest form, which is only experienced once a year, making it an unrepeatable experience. Each vintage is unique.
