Well, fasten your seat belts harvest is a comin. We have had a very cool growing season this year and the fruit is almost two weeks behind "normal" but we'll get there. The berries begin to sweeten and red varieties turn red during a period called veraison (see Wikipedia for more information).
This year we began to see red berries first in Tempranillo (you know the Spanish word for early is temprano) during the week of July 20. Other varieties followed and we were off to the races!
Berry sampling will begin soon and before you know it – HARVEST.
