» Vintage Watch VIII
By Gregory Dal Piaz
The weather in Trentino has been stuck on rain this year. I am very curious as to what actually happened on the ground and in the vineyards because on paper this year has looked like a disaster.

And in Israel we are still in the dog days of summer. Hot humid days and cool nights. Rain at this time of year is never a concern, though who knows what changes global warming has in store for us.
The harvest is well underway and the vintners I know are pleased. A week and a half ago I participated in a Merlot harvest in the Judean Hills near Jerusalem. 25 brix, pH ~3.3, gorgeous color, and wonderful flavors.

I will be sure to include Israel in next year's Vintage Watch. Thanks for sharing with us!
