The leaves have started to appear, and the moment that the vines will flower is getting ever nearer. At the start, the plant will nourish itself from its own reserves, to then move into a period of vigorous growth. Flowering usually occurs in our vineyard towards the end of May or in early June. It is one of the most important moments in the growth cycle, as it will determine the amount of grapes that there are on each bunch and the size of the harvest. It all depends on the temperature; it needs to remain a steady 15 – 20 degrees.
