The 2019/2020 winter was mild in Moldova, and the spring came early, so we also had an early peach harvesting season start, beginning instantly in the second half of July.
A sudden hailstorm on June 22, 2020, has occured in Bucuria, affecting our peach orchards and vineyards.
Anti-hail systems were silent, no rockets were fired.
Estimated harvest negative impact - 35-40 %.
Today, August 29, 2020, we gave a small party to thank our employees for their labour on peach harvesting this summer.
Everyone was invited, but not all had the possibility to attend. The party was fun and successful, neverthess! :)
This week the peaches after blossom sprinkling has been performed:
