After a rather miserable April and May with cool temperatures and rain, we finally got some sunshine on June 6th. Now, some 3 weeks later, we have been blessed with sunny skies and a few quite hot days. This has produced fast growth in the vines with the established Merlot up over 6' high and even the Godello now at around 5'.

The vines have been dusted with sulfur to prevent mildew and next month should see more growth.
