The harvest is a crucial moment and of vital importance. Therefore, it is crucial to determine the specific day on which the grape expresses its full potential. Throughout the year the technical department controls the evolution of the vineyard in many aspects such as the phenological state (evolution of the physiological cycle), health, accumulated rainfall, …
Approximately during the second half of the month of August begins the envero, at which time the grape changes from green to purple, beginning the synthesis of polyphenols (tannins and anthocyanins); At this time the work of monitoring and control of the vineyard is intensified.
The envero is a point of high technical importance as it indicates the beginning of maturity and the beginning of the countdown to the harvest. It is time to eliminate excess production from the youngest vineyards so that the plant can optimally ripen its harvest.
And also to control the evolution in the older vineyards, which naturally self-regulate producing the right amount of grapes that will be able to ripen on their own, hence the importance of working with vineyards of a certain age.
