Comments about 2017 Grape Availability: Demand has been brisk among our existing commercial clients, leaving only the limited tonnages shown for sale. We do anticipate additional primitivo availability–potentially 2 tons or more–and 2 or more tons of additional barbera are also possible based on decisions we make about the farming and the vicissitudes of the season. Finally, a small amount of touriga (0.5 ton or less) may also become available, depending on yield. The Quinta is committed in its entirety and so there will be no opportunity for surplus there.
The bottom line is that if you are interested in our grapes beyond the limited current postings, we encourage you to contact us and get on a waiting list, as it’s likely we’ll be able to commit additional fruit once we see fruit set and can better estimate yield.
