Vineyard Notes
2017 was a roller coaster year – the valley faced both flooding and drought that haven’t been seen for decades. Winter was chilly! Arctic out flows were very cold (-20) and lasted longer than usual but caused no bud loss. Overall, spring was cool with fewer sunlight hours and more precipitation. This resulted in a later bud break (2 weeks) and more pruning in the rain than the vineyard crew is used to. Areas of Okanagan Lake to Osoyoos Lake experienced flooding; the small Haynes Creek, which flows through our Osoyoos vineyards, overflowed and flooded our southern vineyard. Summer came in hot and dry bringing lots of sunshine and one of the most intense pre seasons on record. From early July, smoke was a common sight in the valley. The fires were not close to our vineyards which meant no smoke taint for the grapes and vines that enjoyed the intensity of a hot summer. A classic warm autumn allowed for a long ripening season. Overall, 2018 was a year of ups and downs where the vineyard team embraced the struggle with Mother Nature and ended the ride with ripe, balanced, beautiful grapes and another stunning vintage.
