Well tomorrow is the start of August when things start to get serious.
Last year at this time there was a great deal of worry (see my post). June and July had been wet. Yet the grapes on the vines looked pretty developed (dark colour), more so than they do this year.
But the weather this year has been better. Though not a picture postcard sort of Summer, there has been rain but nothing really serious, and nor has there been excessive heat. Yesterday was hot and incredibly humid. Today the wind is blowing hot and dry air from the South, it’s 31 degrees Celcius. Rain is forecast for tomorrow.
Unsettled yes, but nothing to suggest anything like the difficulties of 2007 at this stage.
