Winemaking on Isola di San Michele (teaser trailer)
We spent all of last Sunday, from 10:30 until 6 pm, on what is now known as the cemetery island of San Michele picking and stomping grapes in the old monastery behind Mauro Codussi's fine little church (began in 1469, it's credited with being the first Renaissance church in the city). I have much more to say and show about the day, and the place, and the activity, but for now this brief video will have to suffice for what's to come in the next posts.
