VINUM DEMERE

Vendèmmia [ lat. vīndēmia ]

The Italian word “vendémmia” (grape harvest) is derived from the Latin "vīn-dēmia", a
word composed of two parts: vīn, from the noun vīnum denoting grapes and dēmia, from the verb demĕre, meaning to remove.
Searching for the origins of this word in Italian also means seeking the roots
of an ancient act that is still repeated today, practically unchanged, in our area.

AN ANCIENT ACT

Passionate, acidulous, green scents
Glints on the leaves, sharp shadows
reveal labours and hopes
Old broken tracks
furrow the skin of skilled hands
that cradle the golden grapes
Voices, laughter, chants
caress solitary tendrils,
dusty and alluring,
while a shower of sunny droplets
flows in ferrous slivers
forming pools of warm anticipation.
Happy eyes...
the grape harvest at Santa Margherita.
