    Hi Oscar, 1 month before harvest, everyone was saying that there was a 2 week delay comparing to previous years. I didn’t noticed it during harvest and found some that started before. Something changed in September or it was non substantiated forecasts? Thanks Jose

      Olá José, we were all expecting higher potential alcohol this year but we didn’t het it. But despite that, I think the grapes that arrived in the end of September and beginning of October were in better conditions of maturity than the others that arrived in the 3rd week of September. But this is for our vineyards!
