As our grapes started to fill with sugar on or about July 31, 2018, they start to turn color. 

This process is known as Veraison.  For our red grapes like the Marquette and the Frontenanc Blanc the grapes start out as a very green color but then rapidly and the sugars start to build up, the color changes almost instantly to a deep red color (some people see a deep red that is almost a black color).  

All of this is very exciting as now we start our count down to harvest days.

Stay tuned.
