Harvest has ended, each and every grape is under the roof.

Monday 22 October was the first day our winegrower Roman Slouk could relax. Harvest is finished. This was the last day when he set out for the vineyard to collect what had grown on them for the whole year. After all that observation of the sky, if and how much water falls from it, and also into the ground, how much water it holds in it, it was a great relief.

The amount of water that has come to the vineyard was a subject of discussions even more this year than in previous years. For a moment, it seemed like we were going to pray for each and every drop, but the final figures in the statistics we are doing here at Sonberk show that 2018 wasn’t bellow average. "What wine this year will be, we can not say right now we have to wait until spring. But we have harvested more grapes than usual, and their sugar content was fine, so everything looks good, "Roman said, but he still allowed himself a little more to anticipate. "With year-round higher temperatures and having a lot of sunshine, we've moved a bit to the Mediterranean, which must be reflected. The 2018 year will be very special and well recognizable. "

As it will be, we will have the first clues in a few days. We are just bottling the only young wine from Sonberk. Moravian Muscat vintage 2018. Available in November.
