I was in Temecula Wine Country (Southern California) last week interviewing a winemaker. On a hunch, as I was leaving I strolled through a Syrah block looking for the first signs of verasion and Yippee …it’s here! Winemaker David Vergari comfirms it, “ Yep, we’re now into veraison. It started over the weekend. We’ve just passed another milestone in the vintage.” Verasion marks a significant point in the life of a grape. The grape begins to develop its appropriate color and starts to ripen. Harvest season is on it’s way!
