The weather has been really nice during these early days of August. The days are warm, with temperatures up to 33 °C (91.4 F) and cool nights when the temperature goes down to 19°C (66.2 F). Veraison is continuing quickly – every time we walk by a vineyard, the grape bunches are always more colored. Today is the last day of work for our workers in the vineyards: many of our workers are already on holiday and they will start again on August 18. During this time we will continue to come every day to check the vineyards and the aging wines in the cellar.
