Vinho verde and the '14 harvest

Published at January 10, 2015


A good year in the Vinho Verde region, albeit with obstacles, that allowed our white wines to rise to the challenge. In the region of Baião, close to the Douro, the year was notably cooler. The Winter of 2013-2014, in the Vinho Verde region, was colder this year with precipitation above average.

A fresh Spring brought budburst at the beginning of April with tempera¬tures around the average. Summer had high levels of precipita-tion, albeit with lower temperatures. Harvest started in the beginning of Octo¬ber, resulting in more acidic wines with an alcohol level near 12%.
