From bud to bloom

Published at August 9, 2015


Harvest began in early September 2015 to a great start with warm weather and peak maturation of all grapes. Unlike previous harvests, where October was the month of choice, 2015 brought exceptional weather and outstanding maturation for the grape varieties in our area in the Vinho Verde region.

Grape varieties Avesso, Alvarinho, Arinto, among others were grown again with the aid of sustainable farming practices. Winter was cold and dry. Budburst happened with hot temperatures during a dry Spring. Summer was very hot and torrid in comparison with previous years.
