2016 started out with above average temperatures reaching record heat in April. This jumpstarted our growing season and resulted in an earlier bloom than in 2015. Cooler June and July months slowed things down, allowing us to catch up in the vineyard. Temperatures heated up again in August and the grapes were harvested in September 2016.
