Wine Harvest

Welcome to the busiest and most intense time of year in Montegiove.

This year we have been very patient with the grapes. We have waited until the last minute to be sure that they were perfectly ripe and ready to be transformed into Castello di Montegiove wines.

The weather has given us lots of trouble this year because it has rained a couple of hours almost every day. We check three different weather forecasts, nearly ten times daily, looking for more than one sunny day in a row. So far the grapes we have brought in have been perfect, so now we just have to wait for the next few sunny days to complete the 2016 wine harvest.

We are so lucky to have a fantastic group of committed pickers in the vineyard, and two enthusiastic, hard working American wine makers in the cellar. We are so grateful to all of them, and we look forward to sharing the bounty of our harvest with you.
