Raining during the harvest? hum, that is not a good idea…
Maybe we were not fast enough. Or we have few people harvesting. Or we were simply unlucky. But rain has come to our vineyards and we still have 5 days of harvest ahead. Tomorrow we should finish Quinta da Trovisca by noon and move to Tavioso, a 2 hectares vineyard almost in the center of the town. Then, only the vines surrounding the winery will be missing.
Although this rain is coming a little bit early and is concerning us, the most important grapes were already collected. So the best wines should not be affected by these drops. The rain can’t be an excuse for its quality!
It is now raining but hopefully by tomorrow morning we can leave our houses and accomplish our mission: to bring grapes to the winery!
