2017 grape harvest

Post New Topic

It appears that this years (2017) grape harvest will be quite good for the few of us that remain growers. We harvested 43 tons of Bonarda including six tons of Pedro Jimines which is our best harvest in years. It is still below the potential for our 10 hectare vineyard (our best year was in 2008 when we harvested 116 tons!) but we are in the replanting phase after having a disastrous worker that managed to kill 15 percent of the vines in the past five years. Our new worker is doing a great job but still has to bring the vine count up to our maximum of 35,000 plants.

The price for mosto, or grape juice from the pressing and destemming is already up to over 13 pesos per liter or US 83 cents, the highest price we have ever seen, due to the shortage of grapes this year. Many growers gave up their vineyards over the past several years due to hail, frosts and high expenses. Hopefully the increase will continue.

Mike,

Thanks for the info.

Our Chardonnay harvest was up slightly to over 27,000 kgs. and again for the sixth straight year Mumms purchased all of the Chardonnay grapes to make Champagne.

Our Malbec harvest was also up to nearly 100,000 kgs. and again the grapes were pre-sold to a local Bodega under an "Elaboration" Agreement.

And our Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah harvests were about the same as last year.

Our Vineyard manager predicts because of grape shortages prices should be strong but I won't know that until September..
