Veraison describes the start of the ripening process when the grapes change colors and sweeten naturally. The red grape varieties are beginning to turn purple, a sign that sugar accumulation is rapidly accelerating. From the time veraison begins, harvest is roughly 6 or more weeks away. Come up and see this all happening on the vines while tasting our Estate grown wines!
