The weather couldn’t have been more divine. Very little rain fell at the beginning of the year and skies were mostly sunny and the weather balmy from early spring into summer. This lack of extreme weather and the slightly lighter than average tonnage allowed harvest to begin sooner and to move at a reasonable and controlled clip. Mother Nature had worked so hard all year and delivered one of the best vintages of the decade!
