Temperatures have been above average over the past two months. Only a few days, in the second half of November, have been characterized by low temperatures just above 32°F (0°C).

During the winter, it is important to have rain so that the soil absorbs the water to be used in the drier periods of the year; it is also important that temperatures go below 32°F (0°C) so that insects and parasites are killed and the vine can start again in the spring with new and healthy vegetation. The cold is, in a way, a natural antibiotic.
