2018 was a year marked by a spell of frost in April and an episode of hail on the 26th of May. The year was also marked by heavy downpours in Spring and by a particularly hot and dry summer. Despite the attack of mildew at the beginning of the summer in certain parcels of red vines, the sunny period from July through to the beginning of October trully saved the vintage and guaranteed a good ripening of the grapes. The reds began on the 17th of September, required a lot of attention at both stages of picking and sorting, those parcels affected by mildew. The meticulousness of our vineyard pickers, plus the effectiveness of our talented cellar team and our technical ability helped maintain healthy and ripe grapes.
