Here is the Harvest Report from UWC Samos:
Vintage Report – Vintage 2011
2011 was a very good year for the grapes, one of the best we have seen the last years.
The weather conditions were very favorable meaning that the rains during the winter were at a satisfactory and average amount and the summer was cool without instances of extreme heat. The cool summer made the grapes mature gradually and naturally which led to a very satisfactory result quality-wise.
As far as diseases are concerned, compared to other vineyards in
, we had very little downy mildew (plasmapora viticola) which resulted in a slight reduction of the quantity and had no negative effect on quality. Greece
The harvest began August 8th and ended October 3rd
