Women and men squish grapes with their bare feet inside a large wooden barrel. This tradition is accompanied by various gastronomic expositions, parades with floats, and the election of Kings and Queens.
These harvest festivals mark the beginning of the harvesting of grapes, which after fermentation become the wine that identifies each of the areas of Chile. Over the years they have become a tradition in the Chilean countryside that mixes popular activities, cooking demonstrations and large wine tastings, one of the main attractions for visitors and foreign tourists.
