Hail storm on Weiler Schlipf

I meant to post this over two weeks ago, but - as in the past two months - I've been too busy to blog.

Anyway, earlier this month, a hail storm hit the Weiler Schlipf vineyard at its eastern extremities within a narrow 150-metre band. According to Claus Schneider of Weingut Schneider, around 30 to 40% of the future crop - mainly pinot varieties - may already have been lost within this part of the vineyard as a result of the hail.

However, there is a chance that the damaged vines may yet recover during the course of the season, given that its still early days in this year's vegetation period.
