When harvest season ends, it's fire time — and fun time as well. In a tradition originating in France, wineries prune their grapevines, collect the cuttings, and get burning. It's a way of both cleansing away the season that's passed and celebrating the coming of new growth.

At many of vino-producing establishments, it's also reason enough to have a party, and Sirromet Winery is no different. On August 13, they'll be celebrating with tipples, food trucks and live entertainment, all around a bonfire.

At their first ever Burning of the Vines Festival, there'll also be plenty of picnic space, pizzas on their Tuscan terrace and just an all-round ace way to spend a boozy winter afternoon. Entry is free, but registration is required — and while relaxing on the grass is recommended, BYO food and drinks aren't allowed.
