It seems that the plague of rabbits this year is effecting the grape harvest in the vineyards at Torrevieja and La Mata.
The ownwers reckon that 15% of the crop will be lost due to the little furry creatures who eat the buds and the grapes on the vines.
The 100 year old vines which occupy of 46 hectares survived the epidemic of phylloxera which hit many vineyards only to now be struck by rabbits.
The eight owners, who pay a nominal rent to the salt company for the land, still make their wine in the traditional way. The blend of 66% moscatel and 34% meseguera grape brings the wine to between 14 and 15 degrees of alcohol.
Pamela, pass me the shotgun.
