Minister of Viticulture Romain Schneider paid a visit to Luxembourg's vineyards on Tuesday.
During the Minister's visit in Grevenmacher on Tuesday, some first insights into what people may be able to expect from this year's harvest were given. Notably, the warm, dry weather in late summer allowed the vineyards to grow rapidly following the substantial amounts of rain in late spring and early summer.
While the Covid-19 crisis still causes issues here and there, the Grand Duchy's winemakers are able to rely on a sizable pool of harvest workers thanks to a cooperation with the National Employment Agency (Adem).
For his part, Schneider announced that "the real work" starts now, as the winemakers try to turn "a good year" into "a really good year in the bottle".
