Growing Conditions

2021 ended up being a strong vintage in spite of challenges in the form of intense humidity earlier in the summer and several significant rain events. The rains were well-timed. Just before bloom and just before veraison, and other rain events were spaced out and came and went quickly. September and October were very warm with plenty of sunshine resulting in a full ripening of the crop. We were fortunate to conclude our harvest before the Nor’easter storms of late October.
