Harvest report Rheingau Estate 2010


Growing season: After a long and cold winter with an unusual amount of snow, the shoot of the Riesling vines was set on the 26th of April, which is five days behind the 10-years-average. May presented cool and humid, so that the vines grew very slowly. The florescence of the vines was registrated on the 16th of June. During the dryness in June / July, the vines stood to benefit from the rain in May. Due to the many rainfalls in August, a strict selection by hand was neccessary to get healthy grapes. This downsized the amount of harvested grapes.
