Rains in the forecast
It seems that we have more rains on the horizon. I hope you had a chance to protect your vines, it it was not done recently. At Winchester area, yesterday's rain events were sporadic and it was not significant disease event except for downy mildew, but some of nearby area probably had more continuous rains, thus you need to check your local weather. We have having 13 consecutive nights that favors downy mildew sporulation, thus even though the threat on fruits are gone, you may want to consider downy mildew materials to protect your foliages.
