Overall, the year was a challenging one. After mild temperatures in February, the growing season began with several spring frosts and snow, posing threats for the yields. Fortunately, the summer temperatures were very warm, as typical for the Tikveshija region. The vineyard and winemaking teams paid attention to details and dedicated themselves, ensuring that excellent wines were produced from this harvest season. 

Vranec is picked in three harvests: from 23 to 25 September, from 4 to 6 October and from 8 to 10 October with the best possible indicators for sugar and acidity at optimum flavour ripeness. Grapes are hand picked by choosing the best bunches, and then packed in small crates containing up to 10kg of weight. This way of collecting the grapes, ensures total control over the fermentation process as the fruit remains whole. During the last harvest some dried grape berries were picked, combined with other features, it gave the wine some specific taste.
