Veraison 2019!

The ripening has begin!  Last Thursday, August 8 we began placing the bird nets on the vines.  The changing color is occurring  a little later this year by about a week.  This Spring’s late frost and the warm, wet conditions may be contributing factors but nobody really knows exactly why the dates vary from year to year.  The important thing is that it has commenced and now we can look forward to harvest!
