WINEMAKER’S COMMENTS: The 2014 growing season will be remembered as one of the warmest in recent history and joins 1998 and 2003 for heat and length. An almost perfect start to the season, with great winter and spring rain followed by beautiful July weather. A dry hot summer with a cool September and a warm October made for a growing season to be remembered. The steady heat, and the cool nights gave the vines time to ripen the grapes to optimal levels. This was one of the Okanagan’s driest and hottest growing seasons will be remembered as challenging but ultimately rewarding.
