Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.

The first Bans des Vendanges for this year has been issued for the 28 August. This is the first date under AOC rules from when vine growers are able to start the harvest and it is normally the grapes for the sparkling wine that are picked first for the methode traditionelle as these are harvested at around 11% potential alcohol ie less sugar in the juice. At full maturity the potential will be more like 12% plus. This is a full three weeks earlier than last year and this could turn out to be a good vintage indeed for the Loire. Fingers crossed for just a few more weeks of lovely weather.

Wine  blog ing is fun with Grainger’s wine blog. Its the regular spot to catch up on the latest stuff on the wine scene or maybe something quite different.  You never know what might appear.
