Since 1999 more than 40 different grape varieties have been tested at Kvelland Vineyard. We use some of the earliest German white grape varieties, and we have close collaboration with scientists in Europe to produce new red grape varieties for our Vineyard. The work in the Vineyard starts in February, when last years shoots need to be cut and the coming season is planned. At the end of April the buds for the new shoots begin to open. The vines then grow through the spring and in June we need to select the best shoots with grapes. Winery
The harvest of the grapes starts in September. The best time for harvest is chosen for each variety through measuring the levels of sugar and acidity. Nice weather is also important for getting the best quality grape.
