The National Union/Association of Agricultural Engineer-Enologists of Chile is currently preparing its 2012 Grape Harvest Report. To carry out this initiative, information has been gathered from 2011 in order to take into consideration climate information and its effect on the development of the phenological stages of the grapevine through harvest.

This preliminary report examines the June 2011 to April 2012 harvest period, and therefore all data and references in this report refer to this period.

This season has been marked by high temperatures in the central region throughout the summer and into the beginning of autumn, and therefore the accumulation of sugar in the berries occurred earlier than in previous years.
