Weather Update: Rain Finally Falls in Montalcino

The strongly awaited rain has fallen during the weekend and yesterday (about 16 mm/0.6in). As we’ve mentioned, rain is very useful at this time of the year because it will help prepare us for summer,¬†which already has a very warm forecast.

Grass around the vines

 

The rain, together with high temperatures, helps the growth of not only the vines but also the grass; we have chosen not to use chemical herbicides, so we manually remove the grass around the vines.
