Autumn, the perfect time for making wine
Autumn is finally here, that time of the year when the colours of the landscape change, the temperatures become colder, and the natural daylight shortens; yes, fall has arrived and with it the wine season. When we talk about autumn, we often talk about wine, an iconic and traditional drink, a gastronomic adventure, and a way to explore different cultures. It fits perfectly with almost any social occasion, from a wedding to a picnic, from an evening event to a romantic date.
Winemaking began as a domestic industry, but over time this has been lost due to technological progress, and with it, its ecological purity. The wine we buy today in the supermarket has many additives and this makes it much more harmful to our health.

Last but not least, grape wine acts as a prophylactic agent against stroke, heart attack, and even cancer. It strengthens bones and prevents the formation of kidney stones. It helps lower blood pressure, and improves sleep and overall health.
