2018 campaign

Balance of the 2018 Viticultural Campaign

The 2018 wine growing season was atypical and very challenging. It started a month late compared to the previous campaign and was very marked by strong pressure from mildew and some occasional cases of powdery mildew. The intense heat wave in early August caused extensive damage due to the scalding. Grape ripening was slow, which delayed the harvest.

Scald on the Setúbal Peninsula

Palmela, August 7, 2018


Dear Sirs,

AVIPE comes to convey great concern with the consequences for the vineyards in the Setúbal Peninsula region, resulting from the weather conditions verified in the last few days, with temperatures above 45ºC.


The entire region was heavily affected by the high temperatures, we estimate global losses in the order of 30 to 35%. This situation will have serious consequences for the production of grapes and negative impact on the region's economy.


AVIPE will continue to accompany the winegrowers, promoting the connection with the competent entities and transmitting the constraints that the region is going through.
