Veraison at the Vineyards

     Its that time of the season!  This is the time when the grapes start to turn color.  The color is the indicator for a more important change which is taking place inside the grapes.  The sugar levels begin to rise as the grape’s seeds mature.  The point of this transformation is so the grapes become more favorable to the grapes who will spread the seeds for the next generation.  That means the work will begin for us as we try to keep the birds away so we can get the grapes instead.  The battle will begin next week with the installation of our bird nets, hawk decoys and bird distress caller.  Let the battle begin!
