The second part of my in depth interview with nice guy winemaker Raul Bobet of Torres and Castel D'Encus.
This will be of particular interest to anyone who is thinking or trying to grow vines themselves. 1000m above sea level, Raul faces battles with hail, wild boar and deer.
Good job the man likes a challenge as hail can claim up to 80% of his whole harvest, plus 50% of the next year's fruit due to damage to the plants themselves.
If that's not an example of why every vintage matters, I don't know what is. As he says, all your work all year can be undone in just 30mins.
Meanwhile he's working his magic, fermenting grapes in rocks on the mountain and living in paradise.
We raise our glass to him. If you have the opportunity to do the same, please do.
