Harvest Report 2011: We Have Begun Today to Harvest the Merlot

Merlot 1
Today, we have begun to harvest the Merlot on our estate. The high temperatures of the last week have accelerated the harvest schedule.

The grapes were not subjected to heat stress because they were well covered by the leaves and the vines still had 10 centimeters of new vegetation.

The grapes are healthy with ripe seeds and they will deliver an excellent product.

Tomorrow we will begin harvesting again and we will shift to the harvest of the Moscadello di Montalcino.
