The harvest season has started in Koblevo. The biggest winery in Ukraine is making preparations to gather up to 10 thousand tons of grapes. Experts are convinced that the 2015 harvest is going to be of exceptionally high quality.
Tatiana Matveeva, the Chief Wine Technician at Public Joint-Stock Company “Koblevo” shared her expectations, “This year appeared to be quite tough for vineyards. The weather conditions during the winter period have led to a reduction of the number of grape clusters, and the drought in the summer has caused the reduction of the average weight of the grape cluster. But at the same time, the grapes are of a really high quality. According to our forecasts, due to the above mentioned factors, the wine of the 2015 season will have a balanced taste and a rich bouquet.”
Traditionally, the harvesting has started with gathering white grape varieties, using specialized cutting- edge combine harvesters from France. Special wine varieties for vintage wines are being harvested exceptionally by hand. With this aim in view, the company has employed 150 seasonal workers. For instance, the grapes for KOBLEVO RESERVE WINE series are only gathered by hand. The main characteristic feature of the wine is the grapes, planted in a special terroir more than 10 years ago. Before planting the grape varieties for KOBLEVO RESERVE WINE, experts carried out additional detailed tests of the soil cover and the ground, which allowed them to choose the best suitable location area for these varieties. This exclusive series of wines by the best Italian and Ukrainian winemakers appeared this summer.
