South Africa: Grape harvest up 10% on last year






Regional Overview


Northern Provinces
The volumes, packed to date, is 10,3% up on last year’s volumes. The overall expectation, in line with the estimate for the region, remains good. Producers are monitoring the vineyards after the normal summer rains, which fell over the past few weeks, but despite this the harvest is well on track. Packing of the early cultivars is done.

Orange River

The region is, to date, 7,5% ahead on volumes being packed compared to last season. The early part of the region is done packing Prime and Flame. They have started packing Thompsons while the later part of the region is still busy with the early cultivars.

Olifants River
This region's packing season is currently in full swing. The vineyards seem to have recovered well from last season’s hot and dry conditions. The colour development of red and black varieties is better compared to last season.

The Berg River and Hex River regions did not start packing yet. Favourable conditions remain.
