Winemaker Notes
Vintage Notes: The 2013 season began quickly with a warm spring and bloom in early June, about two weeks earlier than normal. A moderate summer followed with relatively low disease pressure and a large crop. After significant thinning, we looked forward to harvesting in late September. It rained about two inches between 9/4 and 9/5, moisture we needed to keep the plants active and help finish the ripening process. On September 21 the clouds moved in again and it began showering intermittently for the next week. On 9/28 a major storm front brought more than four inches of rain over the next 48 hours. On October 2nd, the sun returned and the weather was sunny and dry for the next three weeks. Depending on the level of ripeness at each vineyard location, we picked before, during, and well after the rain events in late September. It was a very nice vintage for white wines.
