    Nice pic, Oscar. Is the harvest early this year?

    Hi Ken,

    Yes, this year we started 10 days earlier than in 2008. August was really hot, and although the budbreak has started late, the ripening was quicker than normal. It is interesting to mention that in spite of hot weather and higher sugar content than normal, the acidity is pretty good.

    I know this is a very busy time of the year for you. So I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to keep us informed as to how things are going during the harvest.

    Muito obrigado,

    Andy Velebil
