  • The grapes are in!

    You might have noticed that the weather this year has been particularly excellent.  In Sicily, surprisingly enough, it’s been the same story.  So good in fact that this year our co-operative in Menfi, Settesoli, has had to get special permission from local authorities to harvest the Pinot Grigio grapes that go into Mandrarossa’s Pinot Grigio a little earlier than the usual 1st August, as they were at the perfect condition for picking.

    As you can see from the picture, the whole winemaking team down at Settesoli are really excited about this harvest as the grapes are looking really good and they fully expect a very successful vintage to be produced.

    Ah, what we’d give for a cooling glass of fresh grape juice right about now...
