The 66th harvest at Can Martí
Commencing on August 13th and concluding on September 27th, with occasional pauses due to storms and the necessary maturation of select varieties. Truth be told, 2018 will stand out as the year engraved in our memory for the highest rainfall across all four seasons, causing a 10-day delay in the harvest compared to the previous year. The total rainfall on our estate from January to September 2018 amounted to 822 liters per square meter.
Ecological excellence: meticulous hand-harvesting of 11 varieties
The 11 ecologically cultivated varieties were meticulously hand-harvested and swiftly transported to the cellar using small trailers or 25kg boxes. While minor instances of mildew were detected in the most susceptible varieties, the manual harvesting process allowed for a pre-selection of grapes on the vine, impacting only production and not compromising quality.
