According to the date in the calendar, only few would have guessed it but who has been driving around the vineyard, he does not wonder. Earlier this morning, at about six o'clock, Sonberk began the most anticipated part of the year - harvesting grapes. About thirty assistants helpers ran into the Moravian Muscat, which matured first, and we started to process it.
But much work had to be done before the start of the vintage. Last week we finished with vintage 2017, by bottling botrytis Riesling 2017 into Magnum bottles, with a capacity of 1.5 liters. Before this year's harvest comes to the cellar, we must remove all of the wine and any mess to avoid contamination. The cleaning happened everywhere, including the space under the roof, which is intended for drying grapes for straw wine.
Now let’s just hope the weather won’t change. Wish us luck :)
