Franciacorta harvest has begun

A note from Pievalta winery manager Silvia Loschi:

Here’s a photo [above] of Verdicchio grapes taken today in our Moie vineyard.

We’ve been preparing for the 2013 harvest this week.

We started by checking and cleaning the press, tanks, and pumps.

On Friday morning at 7:30 a.m., we began sampling berries in the Moie and San Paolo vineyards.

The grapes are still ripening and the analysis tells us that we still need to wait for for the beginning of the harvest.

Finally, after two early harvests in 2011 and 2012, we’re looking forward to a more classic date for harvesting our Verdicchio.
