Growing Conditions

2013 started off well with a mild winter, and bud break was only slightly delayed by the cool spring. The warmth of August and September balanced the slow arrival of summer heat and dryness. October's on-average warmer daytime temperatures, combined with cooler nights, helped to increase sugars while maintaining good acidity in the fruit. There was little mildew concern despite summer/fall humidity, and pest pressure was low as well. Thanks to the higher overall moisture levels of the growing season, we had greater crop volumes in most whites and quick-ripening reds.
