Viña Concha y Toro achieved the reuse, management and recycling of 100% of its industrial waste.
For many, summer means relaxation and rest. However, in Concha y Toro this time implies one of the most important stages of the year: the beginning of the harvest.
During January and February, the process of ripening of the grape culminates, so that the harvesting of the grapes in the farms throughout the country begins to be scheduled. Each vine has its harvest time, since their ripening time is different. This stage usually extends from the end of January to the end of May, depending on weather conditions.
This year, the harvest began on January 29 in the Limarí Valley, Coquimbo region. These vineyards, located 460 kilometers away from Santiago, are the ones located further north owned by Concha y Toro. This terroir, which combines a semi-desert climate with low rainfall, has allowed the greatest potential of white grapes and fresh red grapes.
This is why the Limarí Valley is characterized by producing white wines with great personality, such as Chardonnay, and lighter red wines, such as Pinot Noir and Syrah.
As is tradition, the grape harvest started in this valley, first with the grape that will be the base for sparkling wines, such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and then Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Viognier and Syrah.
Due to the lower temperatures this year, the harvest was delayed a bit compared to previous years. However, this allows a slower maturity of the grape and can be harvested at its best.
“As it is a colder year we will have a very interesting expression of the wines, because they should be fresher and the fruit expression more citric in the case of Chardonnay, and of fresh berries in the case of Pinot Noir and Syrah”, explains Javier Villarroel, Senior winemaker at Limarí Valley.
It is in this valley where the grape harvest started, a process that involves the participation of a large number of Concha y Toro collaborators and represents the spirit that the winery has maintained since its foundation, 135 years ago. From this moment, the Harvest 2018 starts developing throughout the different valleys where Concha y Toro is present, which has been, until now, scheduled and carried on in total normality.
