VINTAGE 2008 - After a warm winter vegetation started early at the beginning of April. Due to frost on May 1st we suffered severely in certain vineyards. Flowering went quickly in the beginning of June. The rest of the vegetation period was very hot and dry, which ended only in September with the long sought after rain. The beginning of main harvest was third week in October for the classical, light and crisp Veltliners. Riesling followed in the last week of October and first week of November. The rest of November we were busy for the single vineyard GV’s and selecting grapes for sweetwines. Icewine was harvested this year in two steps: first on December 19th and then again on February 19th.
