Spain 2019 harvest report region by region

Jumilla– grapes crushed in 2019: 78 million

The length of the harvest in Jumilla, a particularly large DO extending over 2,500 sq km across north-eastern Murcia and the province of Albacete in Castilla-La Mancha, took place over three months. It progressed steadily according to the ripening periods for vineyards with different altitudes and exposures and also according to grape variety.

Early-maturing whites were harvested first followed by reds including Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha Tinta and Garnacha Tintorera and finally the leading red Monastrell with the last grapes of this flagship variety being picked in early November. An almost total absence of disease bodes well for Jumilla’s wines this year which is likely to include a high proportion of organic production.
