Veraison in the vineyard happening now
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, not Christmas. Veraison! It’s a signal that harvest is just around the corner. We couldn’t be more excited! 🙂
In viticulture (grape-growing), veraison is the onset of ripening. The term is originally French (véraison), 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.
