Harvest 2019: Winter was cold and challenging for the vines, with temperatures falling to -12ºC, and continuing to be low in February and March. Finally, at the end of winter and during spring, the rain made its appearance in the area, in abundant quantities. At the end of June the rains finally stopped and warmer temperatures were recorded, providing the ideal conditions for good fruiting and fruit set, heralding the promise of an abundant harvest. The harvest season was longer than usual.
