This 2023 harvest season in Capçanes has been marked by an extraordinary natural challenge. With the main focus on the red Garnacha variety, as well as Merlot, Tempranillo, and Syrah for Kosher wines, the winery faces unusually high temperatures and persistent drought. Despite these challenging conditions, the technical team has shown stoic dedication.
Preparations for this harvest began months ago when the team started to prepare the vineyard to cope with the effects of water scarcity. Through specific pruning techniques and soil cultivation, the technical team has worked diligently to ensure the vine health in the face of hydraulic stress.
The production of Kosher wines in Capçanes represents a commitment to tradition and exceptional quality. In addition to environmental and agronomic concerns, the production of these wines involves a spiritual and cultural dimension. A rabbi guides each step of the process, from harvest to bottling, ensuring strict adherence to Kosher laws at every stage. This level of meticulous attention not only maintains the religious integrity of the wines but also reinforces the reputation for exclusivity and authenticity that characterizes Capçanes’ wines.
Kosher wines, with their predominantly Jewish market, have gained renown throughout Europe as exclusive wine products. This year’s harvest will test the team’s skill in maintaining the high quality that defines these wines, despite adverse circumstances. With tenacity and expertise, this harvest season exemplifies the passion and dedication of Capçanes’ vintners in the face of nature’s challenges.
