Upon coming to the vineyard, everybody gets scissors and short instructions on how to do grape picking, and - harvest can start!

After an hour we make a break for a real vineyard's breakfast! In a beautiful ambience of vineyards, we bake on open fire some bacon, sausages and other Srem specialties. Who wishes can do it on his own, otherwise there is kind staff of Mačkov podrum winery to assist.

Afterwards we continue the harvest, compete and announce winners.
