Veraison is here! 🍇
Veraison signals the official onset of the ripening of the grapes. This is a period of time when varieties like our Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache will shift from green, to rich tones of red and purple, while white grapes, such as Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay will transform into warmer hues of golden yellow. The cluster skins will soften, and the sugar levels will rise until they are just right for the picking.
"This is an exciting time because we know that once varaison is complete, we are not far off from harvesting and making our new vintage wines! We typically stress the vines during varaison by reducing the water to the vines. Stressing vines at this stage produce grapes that give wines deeper color and better overall better phenolics." - Winemaker, David Parrish
