Veraison!

Houston, we have color! Just in a few blocks of the Pinot Noir this week, but at least we're seeing some progress out there. I think there's a celebration in order!

Veraison is when the grapes turn from green to purple and finally begin to ripen. Typically you can then predict an average number of days from veraison to harvest. This year, we're all very hesitant to put a number on it, but are hoping to pick by early October.

As always, we'll see!
