Let´s Celebrate the Harvest in Mendoza
The Harvest Festival 2019, develops an intense calendar with tourist-cultural activities that include district harvest festivals and folk festivals that start at the beginning of the year and finish the first days of March in the city of Mendoza with the central act of the National Harvest Festival.
It may seem a little early to think about the 2019 harvest, but wine makers have the harvest on their minds all year round as they keep an eye on the climate and survey the evolution of the vines and the grapes. It's never too early for visitors to think about the harvest either. Bordeaux blends several different grape varieties, all ripening at slightly different times. The harvest can last for several months here and every chateau has its own traditions and technical differences. It's an exciting time to visit!
