HARVEST 2018 FINISHED

Locations Ctvrte and Trkmanska represented first part of this year's harvest. Laboratory values are very good, even exceptional. Extracts (non-sugar) 30-35 g/l show high qualities. Location Terasy came second this year. these mostly young vineyards suffered from aridity. Early September brought rain, and in 3 days we had 100mm/m2 of rainfall. The grapes started to crack, so we had to select only the quality grapes for processing in our cellar. This year we had a big problem with fallow deers, who almost "masacred" our Terasy. We tried to get rid of them, but didn't succeed. Especially this long and dry summer the deers were thirsty and hungry, so they even walked into unriped grapes.

Overall the vintage 2018 makes us proud. Quantity is rather low, however the quality suggests vintage of the decade, let's see.

Now we need to clean up and then in calm "thinking mode".

Sincere thanks you to whole our team, who really worked to the limit!
