The harvest party Festa Verema Faelo will be the 24th of September from 10h. to 14h.
A wine must transmit the soul of its winery. Jaime Soto
Each September “Bodegas Faelo” starts its harvest and as is becoming the custom in our house when we finish, like the grandfather Rafael did, we celebrate “La fiesta de la vendimia” or “Festa de la Verema”. What is “La fiesta de la vendimia”? The harvest party (festaveremafaelo) is an “Open Day” where you can look and participate, pressing the grapes, like the first generation did more than 100 years ago even with the same tools. The “Festa de la verema” is a public event with free admission in where come people from all the province of Alicante, to see how we collect the grapes by hand and then how we press them with the feet, with the typical shoes called “alpargatas” dancing with the rhythm of a constant dance. People can board on the vessel where the grapes are trodden; the “afollaor” or “afonador” and participate in this “fiesta”, also you will see how we press the grapes in the centenary manual press where we extract all the colour from the grape. At the same time we will offer tasting of local products from the countryside of Elche and wine from “Bodegas Faelo” to recover after the pressing.
What activities will we offer?
