We continue publishing the results of the ripeness monitoring grape samplings: during the sixth week, we can talk about good ripeness development across the Wine Region, with similar results to last week’s.
The Technical Department recommend “paying special attention to changes in acidity and pH values.” In addition, they add that, “average bunch weight is stable.”
Good weather last week minimised the risk posed by the first outbreaks of grey rot, “ with the vines being today in top condition,” says Pablo Franco, technical manager of the DOCa Rioja. However, he pointed out that they “recommend watching the vineyards closely.”
We can already talk about the vineyards being ready for harvest across Rioja Oriental, with some plots also being picked in the rest of the Wine Region.
The Board will continue to carry out ripeness monitoring in the rest of the region over the coming weeks, as it is a key service which allows grape growers to determine the ideal date of harvest in each town, thereby optimising fruit quality and that of the wines made with it.
