The long-awaited Harvest 2019 has begun! This start is the 89th in our family history!
We wanted to commemorate this moment with a very special photo. Our whole family on three of our tractors, which in the past have marked the history of agricultural vehicles: the Porsche Tractors with 1, 2 and 3 cylinders.
Porsche tractors are the vintage tractors par excellence, developed and built between the 1940s and 1950s, with air-cooled engines. They were state-of-the-art machines for the time, ahead of other manufacturers, who were still producing ‘hot-head’ and petrol tractors at that time.
We experienced some really exciting moments at the start of Harvest 2019! It was the first time that these three tractor models were brought together for an official occasion, and this event took place right on our farm. For Gianni and Giorgio Venica it was naturally a moment of particular joy, given their great passion for vintage machines and tractors.
As every year on this occasion, the harvest began with our Pinot Grigio grapes, followed by Sauvignon from Ronco delle Mele.
