The 2016 winter and the first quarter of 2017 had a period of precipitation below the annual average values of the season, with temperatures within the average of previous years.

Spring was very hot and dry. The vegetative cycle began earlier than usual, with the budbreak occurring in the first fortnight of March and temperatures reaching 27 Cº. The night of March 23rd , was, however, extremely cold, with frost developing on the less sheltered locations. The month of April was exceptionally hot, with much higher temperatures than the average values. May was marked by above average maximum temperatures, while precipitation values were notoriously low for this period.

Summer was characterized by an absence of precipitation, and above-average maximum temperatures. It was a warm, and extremely dry, season, set by heat waves in mid-June and mid-July. The Arinto harvest at Quinta de Santa Teresa took place on the 14th and 15th of September, with the bunches achieving perfect maturation and exceptional aromatic concentration.
