Rtveli, Kakheti, Georgia, October 2009

Rtveli means "harvest (grapes)" in Georgian - a hugely important event in the country, especially in Kakheti, which grows most of the grapes, and where most of my in-laws live. Here, brother-in-law Zura and I are taking buckets of grapes to the press, which sends them to the huge clay kvevri waiting below ground. (Focus was a bit off on 2 of these as I'd forgotten to put the choice back from manual to autofocus on the camera, but never mind, it'll do for the blog.)
