100 days

A term or rule of thumb for the period between the flowering of the vine and the grape harvest, which is around three and a half months. In Central European latitudes, this corresponds roughly to the period from mid-May/early June to the end of August/mid-September. However, these 100 days are only to be understood as a rule of thumb, as the actual duration depends on environmental conditions such as climate and weather, as well as the grape variety, and can be up to two weeks shorter/longer. See also ripening time, vegetation cycle and vineyard care.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
