Harvest 2017

ernte2017On September 18 we started harvesting. Our Diva Pinot noir came in perfect quality in the cellar … afterwards there were a few days of rain. On the 22nd, in the most beautiful autumn weather, we continued with full ripe and healthy Zweigelt and Merlot grapes. The grapes are harvested by hand and we select directly in the vineyards. It is a real joy to harvest the crunchy berries. The Blaufränkisch grapes are small-berry – a merit of the hot summer and our work in the vineyards.
