The 2016 growing season began with much-needed rains that replenished the parched ground. The well-drained hillside soils prevented over saturation, and wet conditions continued until March. Budbreak occurred mid-March, allowing bloom and set to take place during ideal spring conditions. The gentle winds and mild temperatures during this time of year
yielded an average-size crop. Summer temperatures remained warm with only a few intermittent heat spikes that encouraged clusters to ripen. Thanks to a longer open harvest window, we were able to wait for ideal ripeness and pick the fruit at our leisure.
