Bodega Cuatro Rayas proposes to enjoy the authentic night harvest in DO Rueda on the 14 and 20 September with its ‘Harvest of the Stars’

La Seca, 30 August 2019.- Bodega Cuatro Rayas, leader of the Rueda Designation of Origin, began last night the 2019 Harvest with Sauvignon Blanc, a French variety settled in the region since the 1970s that has a shorter agricultural cycle and an earlier ripening compared to other varieties in the area.

     José Martín del Campo, Vineyard Technical Manager of the winery, confirms that the campaign begins with an excellent forecast: “Early this morning, the harvest of Sauvignon Blanc has started with an outstanding category and a lower yield than in other campaigns, but producing a great quality grape and a slower but balanced ripening of the fruit. The harvest of the Verdejo varietal is expected to begin in around a week, so it is a little bit later than the previous years”.

Sauvignon Blanc in Bodega Cuatro Rayas
This variety of grape that came from France and spread throughout the world began to be planted in the region of Rueda to be used in the winemaking of all-purpose wines. Later, realising the quality of the variety, the started producing monovarietal wines with it, and in Bodega Cuatro Rayas we can find several brands made only with this grape variety: Cuatro Rayas Vendimia Nocturna Sauvignon Blanc and Cuatro Rayas Cuarenta Vendimias Sauvignon Blanc. These two wines are produced with grapes coming from a careful selection of more than 30-years-old vineyards; they have a fruity aromatic style reminiscent of citrus, with white flowers undertones and some balsamic hints reminiscent of mint.
