Čentiba harvest


unknown author



In the past, harvest was the biggest and most anticipated event of the year, along with pig slaughter and church holidays. The grape harvest began after October 15, following the name day of Teresa (St. Teresa of Ávila). The grapes were pressed in a wooden press and then the grape juice was poured into a wooden barrel. In the 1931 photo, harvesters are working somewhere around Čentiba (Čentiba Hills). Barefoot children in the foreground, holding a bunch of grapes in their hands, and men and women with glasses of must in the back. Some men and women are holding glass jugs.
