2020: Venica &Venica’s 90th Anniversary Harvests

Ornella Venica: “The weather conditions contributed to excellent ripening, which is a prerequisite for a quality wine. The acidity of the white grapes is similar to that of the 1990s, when temperatures were lower. In the Pinot family, production is down by 8-10 per cent.

Optimal climatic conditions contributed to a top-quality 2020 harvest, a prerequisite for a wine of equally high quality: regular rainfall prevented the vines from suffering water stress, the good temperature range perfectly balanced aromatic load and acidity, making this year’s grapes very similar to those of the 1990s, when temperatures were slightly lower than in recent seasons, accentuated by the rise in temperatures.

Waiting for the red grapes to be picked between the last days of September and the beginning of October.

This year’s white grape harvest began on 25 August and ended on 18 September. A period in which the Venica&Venica family and their collaborators entered the vineyard every day to seize the best moment in which to cut the fruit of the vine strictly by hand, because this allows a precise and immediate control of the health of the grapes. “If climatic conditions are important, it is equally crucial to be able to identify the right ripening curve of the grapes,” says Ornella Venica, listing the fundamental actions that lead to a wine of excellence.

There are 40 hectares that the winery has been cultivating for 90 years in the northernmost area of Collio, where this year’s production of Pinot was slightly lower than previous vintages, as was also the case in the rest of Italy. “There was a lower production of about 8-10%,” the winemaker confirms, “which is an advantage for the quality of the grapes harvested.
