A busy month has passed since our last post and lots of new things happened. We have already crushed the last of this year’s reds and thus the 2013 harvest is really over. While the reds are now gently bubbling along with malolactic fermentation, the whites are already further along.

The wine harvest paces along. But this year it’s nothing for the faint of heart. The extremely hot summer had our grapes take a holiday of their own. They preferred to save water instead of ripening which is acutally a really smart thing to do. But this means that we’re now at least two or three weeks behind when compared to the extremely early harvest dates of the previous vintages.Read more »

Trimming the tips of Zweigelt grapevines.

June is almost over and it’s time for a brief look back on this critical month of the wine year. It started out rather cold but with the first warm days the vines started flowering. During great weather the bloom was over in about 10 days and it turned out very well. May had already provided enough humidity for quick vine growth and at 35° C we enjoyed hot summer weather. Currently it is pretty cool again but we also had some rain that came in just right to prevent drought due to the hot weather of recent days.

Spring, Summer or Winter?

Sunday, June 9, 2013
View over Gols towards the west where a dark cloud front can be seen. Sun shines in the foreground tough.
Rainy weather in the west.
The weather constantly caputres our minds. This should not be a surprise tough since our vines are constantly exposed to the elements. This year it really is somewhat remarkable tough. Following an amazingly hot April, May has tured out completely opposite. Especially in its last third and in early June, cold and wet conditions have influenced the development of our vineyards. Luckily we did not have as much rain as other parts of Austria.Read more »
