September in Tuscany is the most important month for agriculture: it’s the time of the grape harvest we call vendemmia. The grapes are ready to be hand-picked and taken into the cellar to begin the process of becoming wine. The vendemmia feast in Tuscany is a tradition that goes along with the season.
This is the best time to visit Tuscany because of many reasons: the weather is little cooler than August and July, you can enjoy the vendemmia atmosphere everywhere in Tuscany and visit the cellars the time when the magic of vinification begins!
Visiting Tuscany during the vendemmia (the period between September and October) You will find many villages are preparing for food and wine festivals! The importance of the culture of wine in Tuscany means that every city, village or even local farm have myriad of wine and local food tasting events.
