Harvest 2019: an eventful vintage year, but with good results

With the harvest of the Riesling grapes at the end of October, this year’s wine harvest was largely completed. Only in a selected vineyard above the monastery some Riesling grapes are still hanging. The capricious weather conditions left its mark in the vineyards, so the diligent work of our winegrowers was even more important. The frost night in May and the hailstorm in August put the vegetation in the vineyard to a hard test. Nevertheless, thank to the wonderful autumn weather with warm days and cold nights the harvest went very well. „We expect a vintage that reflects our terroir. The young wines present themselves very fruity and typical of their variety, with fresh and pleasant acidity.“ – summarizes our winemaker Celestino Lucin. All in all, 2019 presents itself as a good vintage with lower quantity but convincing levels of quality.
