Grape Harvest in Portugal

Yeah, will start the wine festival in Portugal, that’s right the Grape Harvest in Portugal.

The long-awaited period of the year encompassing all the activities between grape picking and wine production, as one says in Portugal, “Until the basket is washed, it is vintage”.

Different regions have the harvest in different months, depending on the grape species, vineyard location, temperature, humidity, among others.
