2009 Harvest – First photo of very sweet grapes arriving to our winery

Grapes arriving at the wineryEstou cansado, a noite vai longa, mas queria ter a certeza que partilhava buy antibiotics new york convosco as primeiras fotografias da vindima de 2009.

Hoje foi o primeiro dia. Estamos a vindimar na Quinta das Olgas, no Douro Superior, e na Quinta da Alegria, que se encontra na fronteira entre o Cima Corgo e o Douro Superior. As uvas estão muito doces, com álcool potencial de cerca de 15%. As videiras têm muitas folhas secas, resultando do forte calor que se fez sentir nas últimas quatro semanas. Entretanto as noites começaram a arrefecer, especialmente nos últimos dois dias. São 23h e a temperatura exterior é de 16ºC.

A fotografia mostra as primeiras uvas a chegarem, em caixas de 20kg, da Quinta das Olgas, que se encontra a cerca de 60km da nossa adega.

    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.
