The Peso da Régua Municipality will host the Harvest Festival on September 28, 2014. Peso da Régua is renowned for its wine growing, and to celebrate this, and breathe life into the customs and traditions of the region, another edition of this Festival will take place this year.
The wine and the harvest season festivities currently bring many people to the region and Peso da Régua is a well-known name in wine growing circles.
Visitors will learn how wine is produced, seeing first-hand how the entire wine production process happens over the course of the year up to the harvesting. A year’s work culminates in the harvest season, and the harvest festivals are celebrated throughout the Douro region at this time of the year.
A Harvest Mass is held, which celebrates a year of hard work in the vineyards, and honours the transformation of the sweat and toil of those involved into wine.
The fact that the Douro River is navigable means that curious visitors are increasingly stopping at farms throughout the region and staying to learn first-hand about the art of wine production. Interested? Pay a visit to Peso da Régua on September 28, 2014, and enjoy the Harvest Festival.
