It’s harvest time at Barone Montalto

18 October. VIDEO

Traditionally, September and October are those months dedicated to the harvest. Here in Sicily it started a bit before this year. Since August our thoughts, efforts and days have been dedicated to this essential moment, during which we pick up the results of an entire year of work – the first step, the most important in order to obtain high quality wines.

It is also and especially a celebration moment, when people meet up in the middle of the vineyard. The harvest is something that people do all together, rediscovering old traditions, respecting the phases of hand picking.

Selecting the grapes, cutting the bunches and fill the cases up. Then at the winery everything is ready to welcome the fruits and start the pressing. And now the grapes become must.

This is a journey in the culture of wine, where the Sicilian tradition, folk uses and experience mix together with new moments, wine methods and style that try to improve every year. The way to reach the bottle is still long, but we’ll keep you posted!

Questo vino ha un colore giallo paglierino con riflessi verde. Il profumo è ricco di agrumi come il pompelmo e delicati fiori d'arancio. I frutti esotici aiutano a bilanciare l'acidità vivace, la struttura e dando un bel finale al vino. 🍊 🍋 🌸 This wine has a straw yellow color with light green highlights. The bouquet is full of citrus fruits like grapefruit as well as delicate orange flowers. The exotic fruits help balance out the lively acidity, giving a nice structure and finish to the wine. #baronemontalto #acquerello #grillo #sauvignon #grapes #experiencesicily #sicily #sicilia #siciliabedda #siciliadascoprire #winelovers #winepassion #winery #winelife

Vitti 'na crozza (Vidi un teschio) è una famosa canzone popolare siciliana su testo di autore sconosciuto, musicata dal compositore Franco Li Causi. La prima versione era un canto di lavoro, dai toni lenti e cupi, aderenti alla cadenza poetica del testo. Negli anni 1970 si adattò il canto a toni più spensierati, nel solco del clima dei gruppi folkloristici, e adattato a ballata popolare. 🎼 🌅 "Vitti 'na crozza (I see a skull) is a famous Sicilian folk song based on a text by an unknown author, music by the composer Franco Li Causi.The first version was a work song, with dark and gloomy tones, adhering to the poetic cadence of the text . In the 1970s he adapted the song to more carefree tones, in the wake of the climate of folk groups, and adapted to popular ballad.
