In the vineyard …
The month of May 2019 was particularly sullen and the temperatures at the beginning of May are still very fresh ….
Indeed, after the April episode, the risk of frost is announced again. Between the 5th and the 7th of May, the temperatures in the town are under surveillance to know if a morning protection is necessary or not.
The vine grows slowly because of this weather.
Most of the work is now focused on disbudding, which will end on the 23rd.
Then at the end of the month rising temperatures and sunshine help develop the vegetation. The first readings are made.
In parallel, the ground works continue.
May 31 is applied to the foliage, a biodynamic preparation of silica that will be beneficial to the plant.
