Grapes Undergoing Veraison

   Here we are again at one of the most interesting and important times of the year.  The grapes are changing from green to purple.  Veraison happens every year as the grape plant begins to send sugar and nutrients up from the roots to the berries.  We have put the nets over all of the vines to keep the birds from eating the fruit.  For the last two mornings I have watched a flock of crows checking the ripeness of the fruit.  Sorry guys, its too late the nets are on.  Its a great feeling to know that our grapes are safe and getting ripe under our bird nets.

     Stop out and check out the grapes if you are in the area.  We are starting to think about harvest so keep watching our facebook for our harvest festivals in Sept. and October.
