1949 Vintage

Not declared.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

Long drought finally broken in June, but hot again in July, up to 106° F. Much needed rain came at the last moment, two days before harvest began, and “did an incalculable amount of good.” Though showers continued throughout the vintage, they did not interfere with the picking, except for two hours.

Started at Zimbro 5th September, Bomfim and Sra da Ribeira 12th September.

Winemaker's Overview

The musts were quite pleasant … [although] the colour of the musts was not perhaps as good as last year.

Ronald A Symington
October 1949
