A warm spring followed a moderately rainy winter, giving an early start to the growing season. The rainfall was in normal amount and equally dispersed throughout the year. These conditions, which continued through most of the harvest season, fostered high-quality grapes and set a relatively easy pace for the vineyard and winemakers. The Stanushina grapes were hand harvested from vineyards on 600 meters altitude above sea level in the middle of October.
