Meteorology/ Climatology

2018 was an atypical year. Higher than average rain, especially in spring. Heavy and constant rainfall. Drier summer, especially from 15th of August to 15th of September. From then the temperature went down, allowing a slow ripening with a late harvest of great quality (between 8th and 30th of October).
