Tomorrow, Monday 28th August 2017, in our cellar begins the harvest 2017 of Dolcetto d'Alba.
Summer 2017 was characterized by high temperatures above average and no rainfall
(With the exception of some summer thunderstorms)
In the cellar everything is ready to welcome the grape, in the vineyard the baskets have already been scattered.
From the samples taken in Dolcetto vineyards, the grapes have a good degree of sugary, good acidity and Ph.
Even the taste analysis of the skin, flesh to suggest that harvesting can begin.
For our vineyards to wait still would mean going to an excessive maturation.
So tomorrow the harvest period reopens, the moment that the entire Borgogno family awaits each year with impatience.
Harvesting is not just the closure of the production cycle, Is a timeis to stay in the family.
It means living the Harvest with the party spirit of our grandparents, where they gathered together, singing and talking.

Tomorrow the alarm will sound soon the hot torrid continues to accompany us,
so it only collects in the morning, To preserve grape quality.
