“Di Venere o Marte, ne si torna, ne si parte.”

Roughly translated, this means “Never start anything on Friday or Tuesday” (venerdì=Venere, martedì=Marte)

Therefore, in order to appease the frightening gods of Italian superstition, we can’t start the harvest tomorrow. Friday.

It would mean disaster.

Easy enough to solve though… We start the harvest today. We don’t need to actually start making wine today, we can just start the harvest. Today. Right now.

SO into our hail-scarred vineyards just in front of the office to pick a few bunches…

That’s Davide saving this year’s harvest, single-handedly, by picking this year’s first grapes on THURSDAY (Giovedì) September 2, 2010.

Thanks, Davide. That was close.
