Notes from the grape harvest in Italy

Posted in Vino Vino Austin on August 24, 2015 by Do Bianchi

grape harvest italy 2015.jpg

Here at Vino Vino, we love Italian wine. And so every year, we follow the Italian grape harvest very closely.

Back in July, Italy had a heatwave that rivaled Texas summer temperatures! Many were concerned that the grapes were ripening too fast and too hot.

But the high temperatures finally broke last week and it rained plentifully, giving the fruit just what it needed during the last phase of the growing cycle.

Now most winemakers are resting easy and saying that 2015 is turning out to be a good to great vintage. And that’s good news for Italian wine lovers like us!

Just feast your eyes on those sexy Chardonnay grapes being harvested in northern Italy for the production of sparkling wine. Chardonnay is always the first to be picked. But in just a few weeks they’ll begin picking Sangiovese and Nebbiolo, too.

Looking good, baby!
