2012 HARVEST REPORT
Yields across the region were low once again like 2011, due to a large Zonda wind that occurred in November, dehydrating the buds before flowering. As a result, many in Uco Valley have experienced a yield of 35 - 40% less than expected, very similar to 2011. Fewer grapes and higher temperatures caused harvest to arrive early and progress rapidly.
Typical Mendoza weather with warm days and cool nights allowed the berries to reach their full ripeness, exhibiting the special intensity of Uco Valley fruit, and the elegance resulting from the long growing season combined with low yields.
