The Grapes Are Going into Veraison

We are excited to see the grapes finally go into veraison!

As per Wikipedia “In viticulture (grape-growing), veraison is the onset of ripening.

The term is originally French (véraison / veʀɛzɔ̃), but has been adopted into English use. The official definition of veraison is “change of color of the grape berries”.

Veraison represents the transition from berry growth to berry ripening, and many changes in berry development occur at veraison.”

During this stage of the annual growth cycle the grapes ripen and change color. We are anxiously awaiting until they complete their full change when we will then be able to harvest them.
