Timing of the Harvest - Quality & Cost Implications

Prices Paid for Grapes

Tao Platon, winemaker at Peninsula Vinicultores (Spain) pays growers on a bonus/negative payment system - extra points for picking on time, quality (measured in acidity vs flavour ripeness) and 30% more pay if they are organic. For example in La Mancha this works out as 25 cents a kilo of Airen and 70 cents/kilo for Verdejo.
