In the vineyard …

July is the moment to finalize the trellising, the lifting, the trimming, maintenance of the soil and protection of the vineyard.
With the temperatures of this summer (2 canicular episodes in 1 month), the disease “powdery mildew” is observed and watched closely.

Evolution and formation of the grapes: The berries continue to grow.

Note that on an inflorescence, the fertilized flowers will evolve into fruit, they say they tie. The others, unfertilized, fall, this is called coulure.

In 3 or 4 weeks, the bunch of grapes closes: the small grains tighten.

The next step will be veraison.
