The Harvest 

The Harvest is one of our favourite Salento Cooking Adventures as it happens during one of the most exciting times of the year.

Harvest season starts at the end of August and continues up until October, with Salento bursting with wine events all over the region.

Immerse yourself in a rural place where you can participate in the traditional rituals of the harvest such as the picking of and  cheerful pressing of grapes, learn about territory and other aspects that make our wine so special and indulge in wine pairings.

A proper harvest that will culminate in receiving your own wine bottle, whose production will happen thanks to your hard work!

Please note that it is also possible to arrange a one day harvest with a private tour / tasting of the winery. For more info and to get a quote please contact us 

ALL OUR CLASSES ARE TAUGHT IN ENGLISH, FRENCH AND RUSSIAN.​
