One Step Closer to Harvest!
The season is heating up, and the first signs of veraison have been spotted in the To Kalon Vineyard!
As our Cabernet grapes begin to change color from green to a beautiful purple hue, veraison marks the point in the growing season when the vines have reached full berry growth and shift their focus to ripening. During the final stages of the growing season, sugar levels in the grapes rise and acidity decreases leading to the development of rich color, character, and flavor nuances. Each year, we cross our fingers and hope for pristine conditions in the Napa Valley that will lend to a long, extended ripening period before the grapes are ready to be picked. With the onset of veraison, one thing is for certain — harvest is just around the corner!
