Vintage Report

Port Vintage Report: A classic, one of the best Vintages of the century, deep purple, with a great concentration and balance of aromas. It was also one of the largest harvests ever. The rain which fell at the end of September was beneficial. A late harvest, at the start of October, in very hot weather. Very mature grapes some burnt ones. All the exporters declared production, producing quantities greater than the usual. Exported in 1929, this wine coincided with the Great Depression, and the traders in London had difficulty in selling it. Part of it was used, in London, to create blends of common Port wines.

Vintage Report

Spain/ Rioja:  Dominant easterly winds during the first half of the year. From veraison onwards these winds fortunately changed, to predomТnate from the north and the west. Very heavy rain in Winter and spring which gave the vines a good reserve of moisture of growth. Subsequent rainfall was moderate. This abundant rainfall in spring resulted in heavy outbreaks of mildew in some areas of Rioja. There was no spring frost. The quality from the different areas and microclimates was determined by the result of the preventive measures taken against mildew.
