Sitges Grape Harvest Festival 18 Sep 2011

Dear Wine Lovers,

 

If you have no fixed plans for this upcoming Sunday, 18 Sep 2011, my recommendation would be to take a 45- min. train ride to Sitges to attend an annual Grape Harvest festival.

The Festival takes a few days, but the most interesting events will take place on Sunday.

 

The traditional part - pressing and blessing of the first grape juice of the year - will happen at 11:45 am at the entrance to the Parish church of St.Bartomeu and St.Tecla (above Passeig de la Ribera, on its eastern side).

 

The fun part starts at 18:00 at the same corner of Passeig de la Ribera, right under the church.

It includes the grape stepping contest (bring your cameras!), the inauguration of the wine fountain (yes, you can drink from it for free!), sardanas dancing and the weighing of La Pubilla counterbalanced by wine bottles.

Next to it, a bit further along Passeig de la Ribera, you can attend "Mostra de Vins" - a wine-tasting fair, that will be open from 12.00 to 15.00 and from 18.00 - 22.00.  

Here is full information about the event: http://www.barcelonayellow.com/bcn-events/details/1106-festa-de-la-verema

Please do not hesitate to ask me if you have any questions!

Saludos cordiales,

Oksana
