The harvest  began in  August 10th with the varieties Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
After the celebration of Mary’s assumption on the 15th August, we harvested  the varieties Malvasia, Moschato B. and Liatiko. Part of those grapes where sun dried for the production of sweet wine.

Ιn the end of the period, the last variety will be the red variety Mandilary  and  it all indicates that it will be mature by the15th of September.
