It is a busy time in our vineyards. Nature is exploding and the vines are growing wildly. The 2013 vintage has now definitely started to develop and we’re looking forward to the coming season.

We had a long lasting and cold winter that instantly changed into summer. Our vines took the chance to bud and are now growing explosively. The first buds opened shortly before May 1st and now, two and a half weeks later, theiy have already grown to half a meter or more. Soon they will even start blossoming with the early cultivars beginning to do so at the end of next week, if the great weather lasts.

The weather has by the way been very fortunate this year. The long winter gave us lots of precipitation and the moist soils provide great conditions for the current development of our vines. Last weeks heavy rainfalls have missed us completely as have frosts and thunderstorms. Currently we are already experiencing a hot and dry pannonian summer. Thus the foundation for a great vintage 2013 is set.

The quick vine development also leads to a lot of work. Therefore we are currently mostly working outsinde in the vineyards and don’t have too much time for the website. We will of course still try to update you with any important news as quickly as possible but our main concern now ist to produce a great vintage 2013.
