Today working on our carmenere and preparing lunch for afternoon work
We have started crush on April 2 , with our Petit Verdot, getting 722 kg!!Thursday and Friday we harvested and crushed Cabernet sauvignon.Lovely fruits, small crop, around 4 tons by hectare, red berries, fresh, good acidity , so all looks well!!
December is here again and for us its a beautiful month full of summer activities, in the vineyards, we had a lot of work, first with our shoot removal of trunk and the upper part ‘corona’, cleaning over the plants, from the weeds, that in this time of year grow very fast, cultivating our soil with the horses, irrigating our vines, and lately sowing them in. We got scores from Patricio Tapia and he’s DESCORCHADOS, 94 points for Antiyal Carmenere, 94 points for our ANTIYAL and 93 for our KUYEN!! This time of year too we have lots of visits that you can see in the photos, we had the honor of having Michael Schachner from Wine Enthusiast Magazine, our Importer from New York, Jorge Perez and many other lovely visits. We too have been making our bio preps, and taking out the preps we made during last April during our autumn.
From all our team we wish you all a very Happy Xmas and the best for this New Year, a new time that we hope will better for all of us, we hope to have more peace and love on this planet and it depends on us!!! A little wine can help!!! SALUD!!
Spring is here again in Antiyal, the beautiful almond trees , and now september 18 celebrating our National day!!
