What's Happening At Massbach Ridge Winery

Veraison is here!

What does veraison mean?

The grapes are turning color – from green to purple in the red varieties such as Foch and Frontenac.  In the white varieties such as St. Pepin and Vignoles, the berries are starting to soften.

This means harvest is getting closer.  🙂

August 1st is typically the date for veraison and this year is no different.  We can now be confident in making our harvest schedule starting on August 26th.

If you are interested in helping pick grapes, please call Megan or myself at 815-291-6700.  It is a fun, exciting time!

 

All the best to you,

Peggy
