Sizzling and dry August in Priorat: presage of a very good vintage?

This summer is moving towards its closing stage, and peasants are about to start the grape harvest, the finale of this period of waiting and uneasiness. This August has been ruthless across Catalonia and above all in inlands like Priorat.

The dry and ubiquitous heat has affected certain plants, like some almond trees that bowed their leaves or some fig trees that grew quite small, however very flavorous, fruits.

The vineyards showed no end of stoicism and withstood until the last days of August, when the first raindrops fell from the clouds, and the temperatures went down. In fact, this has put our harvest a few days back on the agenda, which however allows the grapes recover some of the evaporated liquid. Therefore, we’re speaking about continuing our chemical control of the fruit to snatch the best moment to kick-start the harvest.
