How is everyone's vineyards looking? We received note from the Petaluma Gap Winegrower's Alliance that conditions this spring were favorable for a good fruit set.

There were several days with very gusty winds (even by Petaluma Gap standards), but nothing that would cause widespread vine damage. The recent rain in late June occurred well after flowering had ended, so was not a concern for fruit set (that rain did, however, result in conditions favorable for powdery mildew growth, so the Gap growers have been busy with their mildew control programs). With some of the more worrisome challenges safely behind us, the 2013 wine growing season in the Gap is looking to be one of the best in the past decade!
