Harvest begins today in Castelli di Jesi, grapes healthy, quality high

castelli jesi harvest 2014

The 2014 vintage began with early budding, roughly two weeks before the average. Back in April, we were convinced that we would have an early harvest.

But the months of June and especially July were very rainy and cool. As a result, harvest was pushed back to a more normal schedule.

The frequent rains during the phase of leaf growth gave us concern for the health of the grapes. And so we were forced to concentrate our efforts on treatments for the vines and canopy management.

Our crop appears to be abundant and the quality of the grapes is good. We the month of August to thank for this: the weather has been perfect, with sunny, breezy days and cool nights.

We will begin picking today: we start with our grapes in Maiolati that will be used as the base wine for our classic-method sparkling wine Perlugo.
