2020 meteorological data: A cold winter with average rainfall delayed typical budbreak by a couple of weeks. The dry and warm spring that followed hastened the vines' growth and a temperate summer provided an ideal condition for the start of veraison. Late summer heat waves prompted an early harvest beginning on August 13th.
