Rural scene depicting a group of peasants outside a thatched cottage. A woman is visible through the cottage door, and four men stand outside, gathered around a basket of grapes over which a small child leans. In the background to the left, there are two figures treading grapes in a large vat. Open fields can be seen in the background, and a single figure with a basket on his back is heading away from the cottage in the distance. On the horizon a village is just visible through the haze.
