Local farming traditions are manifested in hundreds of ways during the festivities, while at the same time thanks is given for the soil’s fertility. Gathering in a great allegorical procession, residents and their guests reminisce about work done in the fields, and the harvesting and processing of the grapes. They also announce the beginning of autumn activities that take place in the wine cellars.
