Sagra del Mosto di Sant Erasmo
Sant Erasmo is a green paradise, known as the garden of Venice and a refreshing change from the closeness and dust of main city streets. Walking along the traffic free roads between fields you can smell the scents of wild flowers and watch late insects buzzing between blooms.
It is easy to get to from Venice and the residents head there on the first Sunday in October for the Sagra del Mosto or “Grape Must”. Traditionally it was a festival to celebrate the picking and pressing of the grapes, but it has evolved slightly to a general party with live music, a rowing competition plus all the food tasting and wine sipping you can manage.
