Drought and water restrictions: this farmer will lose 30% of his production

The Château de Carbonnieux produces white wine and red wine near Bordeaux.

According to the winegrowers, the high temperatures and the periods of drought accelerated the ripening of the grapes.

The vines have nevertheless withstood the exceptional climate that has hit the region since the beginning of the summer.

“The vine held up well, it stayed green,” confirms the co-owner.

"It's still an unexpected vintage," says Andréa Perrin, cellar master at Château Carbonnieux.

The producers are expecting a cuvée with good maturity while retaining a "beautiful acidity".

The harvest should last three weeks.

“We will have finished the harvest around September 15 and we will have a rather quiet autumn and winter, if all goes well”, announces Andréa Perrin.
