Harvest Update 2011: Xinomavro on the way!

Harvest has just begun in Naoussa with the arrival of some white varieties (mainly Chardonnay). The Xinomavro grapes are scheduled to be harvested in late September and the vineyards are being inspected to assess the quality of this year’s grapes. It is still early to estimate the outcome of this year in terms of quality for Xinomavro but the first inspections of the vineyards are showing excellent results.
