The weather heats up sharply in the first days of April. Development is so rapid that cooling is expected to slow down the vines a bit. May and June bring abundant rainfall.

The harvest begins at the end of August. The quantity collected surprises us given the torrid summer experienced. Grapes show a good balance of sugar and acidity and health couldn't be better.
