Easter weather report from Cascina Garitina

20 aprile 2014

The last time we had such a severe spring frost as to cause substantial damage was in April 2001.

Over the last few days we’ve witnessed something similar: night time temperatures of 1º or 0º C accompanied by wind.

Fortunately there have been low levels of humidity and the fact that the ground is dry has prevented similar problems.

The only damage visible in my vineyards is to the young, low vines, especially those hidden in the grass, which generates humidity and limits ventilation.




In this case, grass isn’t always beneficial.

This picture shows us in Bricco Garitta at the top of the hill (300m slm) where there has been a chill caused by an ascending cold current.

This is a very rare event, as there has been no damage in lower vineyards or those exposed to greater risk.
