No vintage wines declared or bottled from the year 1902

1902 Vintage

Not declared, despite George Warre's optimism.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

The snowy winter of 1901/02 prevented the 1901 wines being moved to Vila Nova de Gaia until March.  Summer was cool, with storms of wind and rain, but the vines seemed to be doing well. 

Fine weather set in 13 September and harvest began at Pinhão 28 September and ended 5 October at Sra Ribeira.  There were 4 days of wet weather beginning 6 October, but fortunately the best grapes had already been harvested.


The mostos (musts) of the fine wines show fairly good colour and have taken plenty of work.  Grapes brought in after the bad weather need careful escolha (selection).

Winemaker's Overview

Very agreeably surprised to find the 1902's so promising and should not be astonished if shippers recognise their merits and decide to offer them as Vintages.
George A Warre
