26 Sep The Arrival of Autumn Equinox: A Dance of Colors in the Sky’s Balance
The autumn equinox is a celestial event that marks the official beginning of fall. This day, which typically falls on September 22nd or 23rd in the Northern Hemisphere, is characterized by a unique balance between day and night. It’s the moment when the Sun crosses the celestial equator, bringing nearly equal amounts of daylight and nighttime to Earth. This perfect balance between day and night is a phenomenon that captures the imagination and attention of many cultures worldwide.
With the arrival of the autumn equinox, Colle Manora opens its doors to celebrate the change of season with style. On this special day, we want to share with you how we experience autumn in our winery, immersed in the beauty of Monferrato.
The Magic of Autumn Colors
The autumn equinox is a period of transition. Days begin to shorten, and nights grow longer. Nature itself seems to respond to this celestial shift, gradually painting landscapes with a palette of warm autumnal colors. Tree leaves start to transform into shades of red, orange, and yellow, creating a breathtaking display of colors in many regions.
Celebrations and Reflections
This time of year inspires reflections on balance and change. As we head toward winter, it’s a time to embrace transition and the opportunity for personal growth. It’s also a period when many cultures celebrate abundance and harvest, thanking the Earth for its gifts.
In various parts of the world, festivals and celebrations are organized to honor the autumn equinox. People come together to share meals made from seasonal produce, take walks in the woods to admire the autumn colors, and participate in rituals that celebrate their connection to nature.
Ultimately, the autumn equinox is a magical moment when nature and the sky come together to create a spectacle of beauty and balance. It’s a time of transition that invites us to reflect on the cycle of life, the importance of balance, and the beauty of nature in all its shades.
Climate Change and the Harvest
A surprising fact has emerged in recent decades: the autumn equinox, which once marked the beginning of the harvest, today represents, at Colle Manora, its conclusion. This change is a tangible sign of climate change that is affecting viticulture worldwide.
The Harvest and the Return to Tradition
Despite this challenge, Colle Manora has adapted with dedication. Our winery has reinvented itself to face climate change, adopting sustainable practices, continuing to produce extraordinary wines, from Pais, which embodies the strength and resilience of Monferrato to Palo Alto, a pure Pinot Noir that finds an extraordinary expression thanks to our terroir.
Explore the Beauty of Colle Manora
In addition to tastings, we invite visitors to explore the beauty of our winery. We organize guided tours to let you know the winemaking process and the history of Colle Manora, so you can fully appreciate the link between our wine and the territory.
Ultimately, the autumn equinox is a magical moment when nature and the sky come together to create a show of beauty and balance. It is a period of transition that invites us to reflect on the cycle of life, the importance of balance and the beauty of nature in all its shades.
