VINTAGE REPORT: In Galicia, 2021 was a classic vintage in Ribeira Sacra, a throwback to earlier times: abundant rain in the fall and winter, a dry and warm March, and then a cool April and May that threatened (but did not deliver) frost damage. The summer started humid and mild but became hot and quite dry, with a few scattered storms that moderated ripening.
