892 – Winemaking in Iviron

When we arrived at Iviron the end of september 2009 all the monks were harvesting the grapes. The vine yards are at another location, higherup I presume. Pilgrims were busy onloading.
The grapes went directlly in this machine.
They pumped the juice or better the pulp in this plastic tub.
This wooden reservoir was as big as a small but deep swimmingpool.

    Father Vasílios, abbot of I.M. Ivíron, was seriously wounded today in a car accident, caused by bad weatherconditions, so you may read on Keliotes’blog nr 794: http://agioritikesmnimes.pblogs.gr/ . Lets hope and pray he will recover well and quickly.
