The month of April was particularly cool with negative night temperatures.
There was no damage but it slowed the growth of the vines because the temperatures remained very cool during the day.
The bunches of grapes formed slowly, the vineyard remained very healthy overall; there is no particular threat of disease.
For 15 days the weather has been remarkable, very bright and warm and the vines are growing well.
The flowering should begin in a couple of days and at the end of that we can make a first estimate of the harvest potential.
