Winemaker's Overview

In spite of the prevelance of mildew earlier in the year in the Douro our Quintas were fairly free of it, and the grapes gave more than we expected, Bomfim 77, Zimbro 24, Sra da Ribeira 90 pipes of must.  The grapes generally were free of disease and there was little or no escolha (selection).
