Festa della castagna

Manciano is the name of the small village where Casa Margherita is located and this weekend has seen the second year of it's Festa della Castagna or chestnut festival.

We wandered up yesterday evening to have a glass of red and have a chat today with friends and neighbors.

Today back to picking in between the showers.

  1. In Portugal St Martins day-11th November
    is celebrated with chestnuts

    É dia de São Martinho;
    comem-se castanhas, prova-se o vinho.

    It is St. Martin's Day,
    we'll eat chestnuts, we'll taste the wine.

    A typical Portuguese saying related to Saint Martin's Day
