Thursday, 10th September 2009 – the harvest has begun!

The most beautiful time of the year in the Douro valley is here! 

65 pickers are already giving their best in the sunny slopes of Panascal. At night, music echoes in the lagares and the magnificent aromas of this splendorous vineyard start to invade the spirits. The atmosphere is magic….

Adrian Bridge, managing director of Fonseca, is very optimistic for a good harvest. Due to the hot and dry summer lower yields than in 2008 are expected.
