Weather Conditions

A disastrous year, for which the blame can be fully laid on the weather. The cold winter conditions were prolonged throughout much of spring, and summer was washed out with heavy rains. The final straw was a wet September, which resulted in rot and irregular ripening. What few grapes there were were harvested in October. Rain during the harvest led growers to pick unripe grapes, so less rot than '63, but green, acid wines. Nothing to recommend.
