1956 Vintage

Not declared.

Viticultural and Weather Conditions

Zimbro started on Monday 17th September, Bomfim on 27th. Some rain at start of vintage, but it improved to perfect vintage weather for the last week of picking, with graduations improving to 13.5° by then.

Winemaker's Overview

The quantity generally is larger than last year and at Bomfim which will be finished in a day or two it may well be a record and will be well over the 100 pipes. … We can consider ourselves very fortunate if the majority of wines turn out fair. We will at any rate have excellent 1954s and 1955s to help out the 1956s.
