HARVEST 2017: LET’S SUM UP
Friday, September 29th our grape growers finished the harvest, which began this year about ten days in advance. The past year will be remembered as a difficult year for the whole European wine production. Mezzacorona had to cope with some unfavourable weather events which affected the whole of Northern Italy (dry and cold winter, spring frost and hail in August). Sicily has also been put to the test by drought and high summer temperatures.
Fortunately, we can say that in both cases the recorded significant drop in quantity has not, however, affected the quality of the grapes, which is excellent.
