The grape harvest is over. In the vineyards the grapes have been picked, and work has moved on to the cellars, where the Vino Nobile 2015 is beginning to take shape. The climate and the harvest bode well for the vintage: healthy grapes of an outstanding quality, ripened to perfection. These are all signs that point to another great vintage from Montepulciano. This year's harvest was also marked by a notable rise in participation on the part of women: the Consorzio has noted a significant increase in women at all levels of wine production.
Harvest time found celebrated actor Dustin Hoffman in Montepulciano, here to work on his new TV series, filmed on location in the city - an invitation to taste the Vino Nobile was eagerly accepted. Beyond the harvest, the Consorzio has been busy with its calendar of promotional activities, while the Expo in Milan is still the scene of a flurry of initiatives. And then it will be off to East Asia, in November, with China on the horizon.
