Vintage in Review

The Spring of 2017 proved to be warmer than average however, bud break came when expected during the middle of April. We had average summer temperatures this year with above normal rainfall but we were able to avoid damage from the 3 major hurricanes that made landfall. 2017 provided excellent ripening conditions for harvest to begin in September.
