The 2019 winter brought extremes: warm 12° January days to lows of - 22° and lots of snow in February. Bud burst was two weeks later than average due to the long winter. The beginning of Okanagan spring was one of the driest on record. By the end of June, the valley saw a cooling trend that lasted through most of July. At the end of July, the real Okanagan summer started with hot sunny days and little precipitation. September was wetter than usual. October was dry with 15° days and 2 to 6°nights. The weather was perfect to hang the fruit until the end of October, with all the remaining vineyards achieving the right amount of favour, sugar, and acid. No Floods. No Smoke. Overall, it was a low tonnage year with excellent ripe fruit across all varietals in our vineyards.
