Last 22nd of September, Bodegas Viñátigo celebrated once again the Children’s Harvesting Day, whose main objective is to spread the winemaking culture among the new generations. During the day, the children learned the traditional techniques: from how to pick the grapes in the parcel to treading and pressing them in the winery.
After this exhausting morning work, they enjoyed the typical Breakfast of the Canary Harvesters: a sardine sandwich with a glass of the freshly pressed grape juice.
The parents also had the opportunity to enjoy a Viñátigo wine tasting, through which they discovered the characteristics of our unique grape varieties and their blends, the Ensamblajes.
More than 60 children applied to be part of this workshop. Unfortunately, the lack of enough space made impossible to receive them all. The winery apologizes and hopes to welcome them all in future editions.
This event makes part of Viñátigo’s compromise with education, culture and traditions. During the year, the winery makes several activities, including training courses for professionals and specialized students, receiving apprentices from national and international universities, the Children’s Harvesting Day and San Andrés, a traditional feast.
