The label of this beautiful wine, carries the winemaker's story that says the following:
"My father was strong and tall. Of the three harvesters, he climbed the hill the fastest. I spent my days in the harvest next to a wooden carriage that carried two large wooden barrels. The barrels were tilted with the window open at the bottom. Wiping sweat from their foreheads, they pour grapes into the barrel, and I quickly jump to pick up what has left on the bottom with my little hands. The barrel smells of honey, the sweetest fruit compote, and my grandmother's favourite cake. The fingers are sweet and sticky. A swarm of bees around me."
