A couple of days ago, eight weeks of intensive grape harvesting came to an end. We are now able to report about the vintage of 2017:
During springtime we were threatened with late frost but after some fear and trembling, we were able to escape the damage as much as possible. The heat and drought periods in the summer forced the vines to extract the vital water from the depths of our primary rock soil. At the end of August came the long-awaited rain, which ensured the quality of the 2017 vintage. Despite the heat and dry periods in the summer, we are very happy about the healthy, fully-ripe grapes.
