German harvest of the vintage 2013: Good quality, quantity slightly below average

In the last issue of The Brief we wrote about our own impressions of this year’s harvest around Europe. We have the privilege to actually be on site in many of the wine regions and see for ourselves what is happening.

But it’s also interesting to hear the “official line” from different regions. Germany has recently published its assessment of the harvest in 2013, through the German Wine Institute. In short: “small but pretty good.” Their press release also contains some interesting numbers about the harvest volumes, ie size, of the different wine regions. To put it in perspective, the German wine production is about 20% the size of the French production.

Read the press release from the German Wine Institute on BKWine Magazine: This year’s harvest in Germany (2013): good quality but small quantity, says official sources.
