olives 2016

Last Friday have been raining. Not a lot just 16 mm, but we are happy.
On the coast, just 21 km from hear, over the montains it has rains heavy.
In Cambrils it has rain 230 mm in a few hours!

It Has been a verry dry year in Spain. We had 30 %  less grapes and the oliveharvest to come..

Mid november we starting harvesting the olives, I think this will be also less -40 %.
Because we do not have a water-well.


Rain on the Finca Terra Personas

carinena harvest 2016




Last week we have finishing the  harvest of the  Carinena and Cabernet sauvignon.
Just before the rain last friday!
A normal year for the carinena, a bit less sugars as usual, but that is not a problem, than the crianca wines will have less alcolhol. In stead of the 14 to 15  %  range we can go probably to the 14.0 % max.

Carinena from the year 1974


Harvest

 With this machine the berrys come seperate from the ris.
 And pumped to the rvs tank with temperature control.
