During harvest we found a nest (photo above) where a bird had brooded and raised her babies. This is a good sign, as it means that there is a healthy environment that is enjoyed by wild animals. In the meanwhile, the Vin Santo grapes, lying on the straw mats, thanks to the wind that has blown in the last days have already started to dry (photo below). This phase is very important because, as the drying process starts, the grapes remain healthy even if there is humidity outside.
