Autumn Equinox

Lord, it is time. The summer was very big. 
Lay thy shadow on the sundials, and on the meadows let the winds go loose. Command the last fruits that they shall be full; give them another two more southerly days, press   them on to fulfillment and drive the last sweetness into the heavenly wine.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke


  1. The Grape Harvest is well under way here in Northern Lazio.

  2. Italian vintners are in positive mood, with high hopes for an excellent vintage in 2011!
