The 2008 season will be remembered as one of the most regular among the few previous years, with temperatures in line with the average for the period and with a moderate and regular rainfall pattern.
After a mild and dry winter (the warmest in the last fifty years), the spring was hot, with temperatures above the seasonal average, and dry.
After a difficult start to the 2006 season for the Garganega was among the best in recent years.
After a winter with temperatures and precipitations higher than the average of recent years, the spring saw a lack of rainfall although the precipitations were regularly distributed in time.
The low temperatures of the 2004 season and the continuous rainfall in the spring delayed initially the vegetative development of the Garganega.
In the season 2003 was recorded, as in the previous few years, an early begin of all the vegetative stages (8/10 days in advance).
The absence of precipitations that accompanied most of the winter season created problems of drought in some areas.
The year 2001 recorded a significant early start in all vegetative stages for the Soave.
High temperatures and heavy rains in April led to a rapid development of the vines, while more temperate climate and the absence of significant rains in May and June resulted in a good early start of the season.
The budding of the vines was anticipated and very smooth; later the flowering and fruit-set stages took place in good conditions premising an abundant vintage.
