the harvest at Finca La Emperatriz

* The 2011 harvest at Finca La Emperatriz has begun. David González, the lead winemaker and technical director at Finca la Emperatriz, gave the orders to begin the 2011 harvest on the 27th of September. Even though this year's harvest began a week earlier than normal due to a late and hot summer. Finca La Emperatriz is strategially located in one of the coolest parts of La Rioja resulting in a great vintage. – Great let´s use this.

* We are growing! April Hennig has joined Finca La Emperatriz to be in charge of international export and marketing under the direction of Eduardo Hernáiz. Roberto Uyarra is now in charge of viticulture, under the supervision of David González. Meanwhile, Victor Hernáiz was promoted to National Sales Director.
