Harvest in our beloved cava country has begun and will go on until way into October. The small roads will be crowded with tractors with their load of boxes filled with grapes and during this time it is always good to take some extra time when driving. You just never know when you will be4 able to overtake them.
Our cave-making friends report that the summer has been very dry, and that the yields are very low. But this does also mean that most of the grapes will be packed with sugars and full of flavours, so nothing is ever just bad or good.
It will b3e very exciting indeed to see how the base wines has come along when we come down to visit in October.
