Flowering Hints at a Good Harvest to Come

06/16/2015

The summery temperatures observed throughout the flowering stage in all 13 of Germany's winegrowing regions suggest that the 2015 vintage is shaping up nicely. At present it is estimated that the vines are developing approximately 1 week ahead of the long-standing average.


Assuming the weather conditions remain decent, the grapes will need another solid three months to achieve optimal ripeness levels

Each year producers track the flowering stage with great anticipation as smooth flowering is a positive indicator for a good harvest to come. Cool temperatures during flowering, as experienced in the 2013 vintage, lead to a smaller fruit set and ultimately a smaller yield.
