The Harvest 2009 is over – some thoughts in the aftermath

Grapes for Oscar's 2009 arriving at the wineryDear readers, the harvest is over. Finally! After six weeks picking up grapes at the vineyards and making wines at the winery, the hardest period of the year finished on Monday. For now only in the vineyards, because at the winery we still have some musts fermenting and some juicy to fortify.

Some thoughts about 2009 Harvest:

Now it is your turn. Do you have any questions or comments?

    Hi Oscar,

    Good info. I will quote you in our harvest survey to be published on November 7th.

    Please tell me how many kilograms a pipa you need in other years on average.

    Best,

    Herman.

    Thank you for quoting us Herman, always a pleasure to participate in the http://www.infoportwine.com/! On average, with around 750 kilograms of grapes we make a pipa (550 litros) of wine. This year we need over 800 kilograms of grapes to make a pipa of wine, making this a more expensive harvest than usual.
