How are the vines doing?

A snap shot from our Primitivo vineyard shows the extent of verasion in the vineyards. Though this shows fairly extensive verasion, or color change, we still have vineyards that are just beginning this process. The warm weather has helped to speed up the process and is directing us towards an early harvest, though there is still plenty of time for mother nature to throw us a curve ball. Over the next month, the berries will continue to change color, ripen and fill with flavor.

Have a question about vines, wine, winemaking, etc? Send us an email, and your question may appear in a future edition of the Deaver Dish.
