Cold winds, cold weather
The first leaves are out on our Chardonnays.
It looks nice, does it not?
Unfortunately, these last days quite cold days and cool nights below zero have returned and with them worries of frost that may damage these pretty young buds.
This weekend we had guests in the vineyards, which was the occation to check the thermometer that records the lowest temperature of the day.
It does not change anything but then at least we know.
This night it said minus 2. Which is where damage of buds may begin to be a problem.
And unforunately, it is not over yet. More cold days will follow this week.
