The grape harvest on Favignana occurs every year between the end of August and the start of September.
Here, in the five hectares of the Calamoni Estate, you can participate in the Firriato grape harvest tour.
On our grape harvest tour, Favignana will greet you at the first light of dawn, when the sun is still not too intense and the temperature is cooler. You can watch and participate in the only grape harvest on the Egadi archipelago, gathering the grapes along with the Firriato staff. Once collected and arranged in wooden crates, the grapes are loaded onto small fishing boats ready to set sail for the Firriato winery to start the wine-making process.
To experience the Favignana grape harvest tour is a unique, one-of-a-kind opportunity, a tradition continued by Firriato and which today is available for all enthusiasts.
The Calamoni grapes, as well as being harvested, can also be tasted while walking between the rows that touch the Neptune grass, a marine plant deposited on the vineyard by the wind and which gives the soil precious nutrients.
By booking your grape harvest tour, you will discover why the cultivation of the vines has been defined as ‘heroic’.
To book your Favignana grape harvest tour just phone or send an email to the Firriato Hospitality booking centre at least 15 day before the start date of the grape harvest that is published on Firriato’s social network pages.
