1964 Wine Vintage Report

1964 Italian :

1964 wine vintage: 1964 was an important vintage for Italian Wines as many fine outstanding wines were made. A large crop, one of the largest of the 60's. Conditions in autumn were perfect. Growers could leave the grapes on the vine to become ripe and harvest went on until mid-November. A long harvest and a large crop in terms of quality which was was quite good. The main regions of Tuscany and Piedmont produced rich, full bodied wines. The wines are fully mature but heavy-weights such as Brunello and Barolos will keep for many years to come. Five-star vintage for Brunello di Montalcino.

1964 Bordeaux :

The 1964 Wine Vintage produced favoured the right bank which produced some opulent, concentrated wines with high alcohol, an opaque colour, super length and unbridled power. The harvest and weather favoured those producers on the right bank who harvested early (Graves, St Emilion and Pomerol). All of these wines reached the peak of their maturity two decades ago, but show little signs of decline today. They will probably last for another decade.

1964 Vintage Port :

1964-vintage-port The 1964 port vintage was a challenging year due to fluctuating weather conditions. A small amount of single quinta port was made but it is very rare. Some excellent single harvest Colheitas were produced in this year. The weather at the start of the year was unsettled with rain and thunderstorms at the end of July. These were followed by a hot, dry August which developed the vines. The hot weather continued throughout the season and into the harvest when it began to fluctuate. The grapes were more raisin than the winemakers would like and this is reflected in the port produced. Our recommendation is for the single harvest colheita ports as these are drinking very well. They also have the added advantage that they can be savoured over several months after opening.
