Spain 2019 harvest report region by region

Jerez – grapes crushed in 2019: 57.3 million kg

Low rainfall throughout the growing season and a mild summer were the main factors for Jerez in 2019. Annual rainfall barely reached 400 litres per square metre which is far below a more typical year’s 600, while July’s temperatures were significantly lower than usual with an almost total absence of the ‘Levante’ wind ahead of a more typically hot August for the final weeks for ripening.

These conditions favoured gradual ripening and contributed to higher acidity levels in the grapes. “This year’s production will provide 80,000 butts of must of a high quality, which will be blended into the criadera ageing system for our DO wines,” said the report from the Jerez authorities.
