At via Scarpatetti 15 in Sondrio
N.B.: not reachable by car because Limited Traffic Zone and therefore it will be necessary to park in via Largo Pedrini at the underground parking of the GARBERIA shopping center. In any case, parking is included in the package rate (offer valid from Monday to Saturday; on Sunday parking is closed, but surface parking spaces throughout Sondrio are free).
TRANSFER ON FOOT TO THE CITY VINEYARD
After that in via Scarpatetti each participant will have received the necessary material for the harvest (scissors and baskets). The transfer on foot will take about 3-4 minutes of non-tiring walking.
Until 12:00 a.m.
During the harvesting activity, the participants under the supervision of the oenologist and a geologist will be able to learn about the vine varieties present and be informed about the agronomic activities in the vineyard (soil characteristics, agronomic operations etc. etc.).
In addition, the grapes harvested (in boxes) exclusively manually will be given to the winery by the participants themselves, where they will be able to view the destemming process of the grapes. For safety reasons it will not be possible to enter in the cellar, as fermentation being an exoergonic and exothermic reaction releases a huge amount of CO2 which could cause fainting or suffocation.
From 12:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
PIC-NIC IN THE VINEYARDS
Lunch will be provided by Il Salumaio of Sondrio and will consist of sandwiches/panini stuffed exclusively with 0 km Valtellina products, water and apples from Valtellina. Included in the packed lunch there will be (without limits) the red wine DEL NOS, obtained from second pressing of the DOC and DOCG.
From 1:30 p.m.
Following the pic-nic the participants will be transferred to the wine tasting room at via Orti (3-4 minutes on foot) for a tasting of the our 5 wines, namely:

The tour will be confirmed only upon reaching a minimum of 4 people with a maximum of 20. Reservations are required at least 48 hours in advance.
WARNING: As it is not currently possible to establish with certainty the phenological ripening date of the grapes (approximately between 5-7th and 20-25th October) we will open reservations only 15 days before the real start date.
Furthermore, based on weather conditions (harvesting only without rainfall), reservations may be subject to changes, so they can slip up to the first available day (depending on weather conditions and availability of seats). In these cases the company will communicate the change of the date or will refund the fee.
Suitable footwear (trekking or boots) are required for the context.
N.B. Possibility to buy wines directly in the cellar
