The weekend following my Italian 60th birthday party was white grape harvest weekend at Truddhi. As with any harvest in a rural community family and friends muck in. A number of Carole's relative's and friends came over from Wales and made a holiday of it - as they do for the olive harvest.
After harvesting Mino's grapes we went round to pick his friend Tonino's grapes and pressed both batches.
Then it was back to Truddhi for a meal put together by Carole and Zia.
What I love is that we are welcomed into the community, we lend our friends a hand and are rewarded with good food and good company - what more could one ask for?
