Harvest timeA great way to spend a Sunday
We have picked grapes before and had a general idea of what to expect, but realised quickly that this will be nothing like what we have seen so far. The vineyard we had to harvest is on relatively flat terrain, allowing easy access with tractors, and for that reason Boris devised a special tractor trailer. So we did all of the “hard work” while seating down, enjoying in the sunshine.
As the day is coming to a draw, sitting behind the computer and enjoying a glass of vine, writing this my respect of Boris, and other winemakers, is growing even more. Experiencing first hand the love, pride and passion that Boris and his family put in to the final product is an inspiration.
Let me finish with the first verse of the Slovenian national anthem, written by France Prešeren:
The vintage, friends, is over
And here sweet wine makes, once again,
Sad eyes and hearts recover,
Puts fire in every vein,
Drowns dull care,
And summons hope out of despair.
