The 2001 wine-growing season was marked by one of the wettest winters in recorded history, with extensive flooding and damage in the Douro region.
From April, the weather became more stable.
Summer had moderately warm temperatures, with a continuous breeze that kept the vineyards airy and disease free.
However, the long growing season and the almost total lack of rain from June until the end of August caused some stress to the vineyards.
Weather conditions during the first half of the harvest were ideal and contributed favorably to fermentation.
Two days rain affected the end of the harvest, but fortunately, the majority of the harvest was carried out with dry days.
