Emergency Irrigation

When we first decided to go down the path of emergency irrigation, we had a clear idea in mind that irrigation had to be used exclusively to improve the quality of grapes in very dry vintages, not to increase the quantity produced. We have verified that, if irrigated, the vines would present a brighter green color with wide open leaves and they would also have stronger defenses against insects, fungus and bacteria with a better capacity to resist against possible attacks. So it is important, in warm and dry vintages, such as this one, to use emergency irrigation to further improve the quality of the grapes produced. We are irrigating some of our vineyards now.
