The weather in 2015 was pretty close to perfect for grape growing. It began with an early, mild spring, with budburst two weeks early. The mild weather continued and the months of May and June resulted in excellent fruit set. By the time harvest began, the season had broken average heat records! In September, temperatures cooled to near normal, and the rain stayed away providing a long and plentifully harvest which continued into the first couple of weeks of October. Overall, the extended harvest period allowed for uniform ripening and a very nice end to the season.
