Harvest of Trebbiano and Malvasia for Vin Santo

Here are notes of my father about the harvest of Trebbiano and Malvasia for Vin Santo. Tomorrow I will post more photos and a YouTube video but now we are all very tired from harvesting!

Today, we have harvested the Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes
to make the Vin Santo. We have waited the most possible, because of the dry
progression of the season, so that the grapes would ripen even more on the
vine. Our workers have harvested the healthy and most ripe grape bunches. They
were placed in crates and transported by truck to the vinsantaia. The grapes
were placed on reed mats where they will remain to dry at least until the
beginning of December.
