We are counting on a Special Vintage 2018

The final weeks before the start of the grape harvest are decisive for the quality and flavor our wines. After the capricious weather of the past year, higher harvest figures are expected this year. The harvest of the grapes has already begun. It will still be necessary to wait a few weeks for the grapes of our highest vineyards. They have a later maturation period and are therefore picked at a later point in time. We are satisfied so far with the course of the growth of the grapes. The winter and spring months with abundant precipitation pushed the vegetation of the grapevines early. And the warm summer also had a positive effect upon the quality of the grapes. By and large, we are pleased with the harvest.

As far as quality is concerned, the final weeks before the harvest are decisive.Thus far, it appears as though the many intense hours of work and the diligence of us throughout the year have paid off. We dare to venture a positive prognosis: If the weather continues to cooperate up through the end of the harvest, 2018 will be a top vintage.

How will this year’s wine vintage play out? It’s looking exciting...
