The Vintage 2017
First of all, the wine year 2017 gave us some sleepless nights, as we were struggling with the danger of late frosts. Due to the relatively early budding the late frost was favored, fortunately we were spared the frost. The summer months brought with it a heat and a dry spell like never before. Especially the young vines suffered from the drought, which made some irrigation passages necessary to ensure the survival of the young vines. Even the old deep-rooted vines suffered from the drought and it was not clear for sure how the drought affected the quality of the grapes. In August, however, came the long-awaited rain of the wine year 2017 rescued. In the fall we harvested healthy and fully ripe grapes, which laid the foundation for a great vintage.
