In full wine harvest

According to our cellar, on the 8th of September we had harvested 40% of the grapes that will enter in Albet i Noya ;Approximately 480.000kg of the 1.200.000 that will be collected in total.

The varieties that have already been collected and vinified in Can Vendrell are: Macabeo, Chardonnay,Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat, MarinaRión, Vidal, Pinot Noir and Merlot.

Josep Maria Albet calculates that the collecting will probably finish at the end of September, due to the high temperatures expected at the end of the month, which will make the grape forward its ripening.

From what we have seen up till now we can say that we have had perfect ripening, a good acidity in the whites and very healthy grapes.
If the rain in the last few days has been good to refresh and calm the ripening, now we would like it not to rain any more and have a good finish to the harvest...and celebrate it with all the team like every year.

Have a good harvest!
