The summer heat waves and the lack of rain have advanced this year’s harvest like we have never experienced before. It has been a generic situation, common conversation between farmers, winemakers and friends in the sector.
At Mas Vicenç we started the harvest with muscat on Thursday 18th August and two months later we were filtering the first young wines! when we usually still have some thick-skinned varieties waiting to be harvested.
The conclusion we draw from the campaign is generally good as the health of the grapes has been extraordinary and the reduction in quantity has not been as noticeable as we feared. We are confident that the wines with the 2022 vintage will have a very good acceptance in the market over time and we are happy.
However, we sense airs of concern towards a climate trend that distorts the cycles of the vineyard and we will have to get used to it and adapt.
