A mild winter was followed by a warm spring with low rainfall. Dry, warm weather at the beginning of June meant early and almost perfect flowering. The summer was very dry and hot from beginning to end, but thanks to our Biodynamic methods our deep rooted vines still found the water they needed. 2015 was surely one of the earliest vintages on record also one of the quickest. Base wines for our Sekt were already harvested at the end of August, the main harvest was over by October 2nd, all grapes were healthy and perfectly ripe with excellent acidity.
