It is extremely humid during the beginning of winter, and the thermometer registers -5° Celsius on the 12th of January. January 22nd, Saint Vincent Feast Day, is clear and sunny. An old farmer's saying says that winter either begins or ends on this day, and it seems as though winter is just beginning this year.

March begins with beautiful weather and just a bit of morning frost, but ends with big snow fall on the 25th as well as April 3rd. The vines are just a bit behind their normal growth schedule, and the frost pervades from the 16th to the 21st of April and it rains often. There is not one dry day between the 15th of march to the 15th of May, catastrophic circumstances for growing vines. Even still, most vines blossom with rarely seen regularity.

Unfortunately heavy icy rain arrives just before Ascension Day. May is its own disaster, with only two days of sun – the 19th and 20th – and it rains steadily until the 26th. In general, the grapes have developed well, but the vines have suffered under these unusual circumstances.

The first ten days of June are wonderfully warm, sunny, and dry, and the vines are able to make up for the stinted growth during the bad May weather. Here's to hopping that the old farmers' saying rings true: June makes the wine, August makes the must. From the 12th to the 19th of June it cools off a bit. The grapes are showing a generous ripeness at the end of June, and the sun shined during the majority of the month.

The beginning of July is hot, and a storm arrives on the 6th. A proper heat wave follows, and it the temperatures even reach 37° in the shade! The vines are looking good, and there are no illnesses or other problems to be seen. A small storm on the 20th doesn't help to revitalize the very dry vines. On the 28th it is 40° in the shade! You can see the relief on the vines directly when it rains for 5 minutes or so, but the quantity of rain is unfortunately just not enough.

On the 5th of August the young vines start showing difficulties. There simply isn't enough water. On the 16th of August it rains for 10 minutes on the 17th for two hours. The grapes begin to dry out instead of ripen, long after they should already be ripe! The ripening process can now continue. It rains again on the 19th, 21st, and 23rd of August but unfortunately not hard enough to make up for the long draught. On the 28th of August a storm arrives followed by miraculous, three-hour-long rain fall. This rescued the harvest in the truest sense of the word.

The first ten days of September are characterized by lots of sun shine and a few rain showers. Unfortunately, heavy rain follows on the 10th through the 12th: the consequences are immediately visible when a few grapes start decaying. The sun shines again until the 25th, and on the 30th the harvest begins. The extended warm spell makes harvesting more pleasant, but many grapes are sadly unusable because of spoilage
