la vendemmia

Buon venerdì a tutti! Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun la vendemmia, which means grape harvestThe grape harvest is an important time in all of Italy’s regions that grow grapes and make wine. The wines of Le Marche are some of my favorite wines, and (for those of you who like and drink wine) I encourage you to seek them out, especially the white wines (i vini bianchi).

Da fine settembre a metà ottobre nei vigneti italiani si svolge la vendemmia: questo lavoro antichissimo è ancora oggi fatto a mano e sono molti i giovani che lo fanno per guadagnare qualche soldo extra.

From the end of September to the middle of October, the grape harvest takes place at Italian vineyards: this ancient task is still done by hand today, and there are many young people who do it to earn some extra money.
