Rebblüte

June 2021

In 6 weeks from the first green to the foliage cut

A few weeks ago we reported that the vines were growing very slowly, and there was talk of a gap of up to weeks compared to the long-term average. Then came the great rain and after it the great heat.

Everything is growing and at a pace that has never been seen before. The winemakers can hardly keep up with the tacking work, and the shoots on the trunk are now sprouting tremendously. Some winemakers will therefore start cutting the foliage in the coming week in order to shorten the longest shoots at the top and then afterwards to cope with the "fine-tuning" on the sides of the rows of vines in a somewhat relaxed manner.

Most of the vineyards are in full bloom, even in the cool corners of Rheinhessen the bloom came faster than many winegrowers expected. And if the temperatures stay that way, the grapes will bloom quickly, which means that good yields can be expected. The lag in development and the late harvest are put into perspective again. There should certainly not be an extremely early harvest, but according to the rule that the grapes are ripe 100 days after flowering, we can expect a completely normal harvest at the end of September.

If you take a trip to the vineyards in the next few days, however, don't expect spectacular colorful flower petals. The flowers of the vines are rather inconspicuous, the flowers are very filigree and cannot be seen at all when driving past. Anyone with a fine nose will notice a slightly sweet scent in the area.
