The Capture of the hares 2011 

And like every year we renewed the traditional event with the Capture of Hares in Poggio al Casone.

And like every year we renewed the traditional event with the Capture of Hares in Poggio al Casone.

 

"The Capture" of the hares is non violent hunting activity, no animal has been wounded or killed.

 

The Capture's celebration is an event which takes place in Poggio al Casone every year in February, and it announces the new season's beginning.
A weekend is dedicated to the wild hare's capture, an activity celebrating without cruelty the ancient hunting art that has always been joining man and countryside in Tuscany.

 

The hare, that somewhere else is considered harmful for the vineyard, can live here undisturbed among our vineyard rows, feeding on the several types of wild grass. The whole surrounding area is repopulated every year thanks to the wild hares bred in our vineyard. Hares, together with fishes and ducks living in the farm's pond are witnesses of the complete natural features of our agriculture.

 

Following the event a happy and large group lunch, where you can eat typical of our area and you can drink wine that takes its name from this tradition, "The Capture" of Poggio al Casone.
