The meteorological summer is the three months June, July and August. It has been dry here this summer, particularly in August with only 19mm. Over the three months as a whole we have had 96mm, compared to 137mm in 2015 and 175mm in 2014. So far the vines are not suffering from drought stress took much, but a good storm would certainly help them. There is no rain in the 15 day forecast at the moment so fingers crossed that the vines can find enough water to get the grapes fully ripe.
