Harvest

Depending on the entire growing season, the grapes can be ready for harvest between late August and early September. Our aim is to attain a harmonious balance between sugar and acidity.

This period is characterized by loud banging throughout the vineyards and nets covering the canopies to prevent birds from eating the crop. The moment the grapes have come out on the other side unharmed and their ripeness level is optimal, clearly visible in their brown pips, the harvest can begin. Harvesting machines pick the grapes during the cool night hours: As the sun can still be fairly strong throughout September, this could cause an unwanted heating of the harvested grapes.
