The weather analysis is very important to understand the way our vines are growing. Thank you to the support of "Consorzio della Denominazione di San Gimignano" that installed 4 weather stations to record the main weather data in different locations in the San Gimignano area, now it is possible to summarize the weather data day by day.
Here we present the April trend around our vineyards.
Mean rain = 1,7mm
Mean wet leaves = 6,6 h
Mean solar radiation = 212 W/m2
Mean temperature = 15°C
On May 4th and 5th we participated to the Simply Italian Germany 2015 event held in Berlin and Munchen.
There were importers from Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and obviously from Germany. Everyone showed a deep interest in Vernaccia di San Gimignano and Chianti Colli Senesi. A very interesting seminar presented many wines of Italy to German professional users and with big surprise, Vernaccia di San Gimignano was the oldest wine served, showing big body, freshness and incredible ageing potential.
