Navajas Spain harvest

Spain harvest 2018

By Charlotte Levy   The Spanish harvest this year can be summed up as balanced.   In general, Spain didn’t experience the heatwave and sunshine that the majority of Northern Europe enjoyed in 2018. More moderate weather and mostly welcomed rainfall meant yields were around average, or slightly below, but quality throughout the regions is high and our producers are positive after a mixed 2017.   Here’s what our producers had to say:   Rioja   Bodegas Navajas   “2018 has put us back on track with a great year in terms of quantity and quality after...

Rainfall and hail were particularly tricky to navigate this year, but overall our producers are very positive about the quality, and generally higher quantity, of the young wines.   Here’s a round-up of the 2018 harvest from some of our producers:   Alto Adige   Alois Lageder (Trentino-Alto Adige)   A wet...

Santo Wines harvest

Rest of Europe harvest 2018

While challenging in some parts of Europe, the 2018 wines are expected to be brilliant. The heat of 2018 has impacted producers from Germany to Turkey in a number of ways. For most, the dry, warm year has resulted in larger, higher-quality yields than they’ve seen for several vintages. For a few, like Greece, the intense heat and drought has decreased yields and meant that 2018 had its fair share of obstacles.   Nonetheless, whether in larger or smaller quantities, the wines are expected to be good...
