In the vineyards

Bloom is expected soon. The weather has been mild and the vines were early but the fresh temperatures encountered lately slightly reduced this advance. However, the vegetation growth is still ahead and we might consider harvesting during the first fortnight of September.
The rainfall is low and so is the disease pressure, which brings relief to wine-growers, compared to the situation of the last two years.
The vines show a good and even abundant quantity of clusters, but we know that this gorgeous potential might be reduced (even destroyed) by nature's whims. We have to be extremely cautious.
