The 2017 growing season started off with ample rain, which helped to replenish soils after 5 years of drought. The much-needed rainfall helped to generate healthy vine growth. Mild spring weather led to successful bloom and set of healthy grape clusters. Warmer temperatures in July helped to achieve full ripeness of the fruit. A heat wave in early September sped up ripening, but by the end of the month, it slowed back to normal as the temperatures cooled.
