Wine exports start to Angola

This article was originally published in Foodnews

SPANISH agricultural co-operative La Unión de Montilla has begun shipping its red wine to Angola, with two million litres of syrah already exported. Jennifer Willis-Jones writes: The union's supervisor, José Garramiola, said that the red wine sent to Angola, which is a new market for the co-operative, was of a very good quality. Meanwhile, the union has already collected its Merlot grapes and is in the process of collecting the Syrah variety to make red wine this year. According to Garramiola, some 18.5 million kg of grapes will be harvest harvested which, in normal conditions, will produce 12.5 million litres of wine. Harvesting of the regional Pedro Ximénez variety starts at some point this month, depending on the grade of ripeness. "Until we know the state of the fruit we cannot give an exact date," Garramiola said.
