Uriondo 2013 Harvest

Uriondo Harvest

Regarding the climate this year, the most notable fact is that the end of the winter and the spring were extremely wet, and it rained nearly daily during that time. Temperatures remained cool into the early summer, including during bud break and flowering, which had an effect on the quantity of the harvest. After the solstice, the weather became more standard for the season, with warmer temperatures and little rain, and this lasted through the month of September.
