  • Vintage Report

    • 2022 was a very warm and dry year. The good rain episodes at the end of August and early September were ideal and particularly important to help the vines balance the fruit profile and continue a normal ripening process. Quantities were quite reduced due to the drought in addition to three episodes of hail throughout the season. Despite this unusual climate, 2022 vintage has shown a very beautiful fruity and bright profile in the wines.
