Prosecco Diaries: May 2015

May was a month rich with events and rewards. Everything is moving forward smoothly in the vineyards.

It’s been a relatively easy month in terms of the health of the vines. The weather is ideal with the right amount of rain. Moderate temperatures have made for healthy vegetative development without creating problems of rot.

May 3 – We received stakes made from chestnuts trees. We’ll use them in our Monfumo vineyard.
