Vintage in Review

2016 provided ample moisture, getting the vines off to an early start. The weather turned warm and dry with bright sunshine for the remainder of the season, which frequently happens here in the Mid-Atlantic. As September arrived the weather turned cool, which is ideal for the ripening of fruit.
