Loire valley vineyard update 14 May 2018

baby grapes in the making

Well, it seems like we made it past the frost saints (11th, 12th and 13th May) so growers are beginning to relax as we approach the second half of May. We had one or two nights in the past couple of weeks when temperatures dropped dangerously close to zero but it seems that we are out of the major danger zone. Vines are looking very healthy and what will become future grapes is now clearly visible.
