This growing season was defined by winter conditions that did not present any extreme weather events, temperatures were mild, and precipitation was limited. The first half of spring was rather dry and sunny that prompted early and even vine growth. Relatively wet, rainy conditions in the months of May and June slowed down the vines’ vegetative cycle and set the timetable back but provided a generous replenishment of groundwater reserves. These climatic conditions together with moderate summer temperatures prevented water stress. Frequent cluster thinning guaranteed balanced production per vine and boosted berry development. Excellent weather in the month of September, with significant temperature swings between day and night, brought perfectly whole, healthy grapes to optimal ripeness. Harvesting operations took place from September 10th to the 25th.
