Veraison is underway in Napa Valley

by TrevR on July 22, 2008

As hard as it is to believe the summer is flying by and before we know it harvest will be upon us. We always judge the passing of time by the way the vineyards look…and while out on a walk about a week-and-a-half ago we noticed some significant changes happening in our local Oak Knoll District vineyards.

The process of veraison, where the grapes begin the ripening process and change color, is already well underway. Not only that, but many of the leaves are starting to change color from green to yellow/orange/red.

Here are a few shots of what things look like here in the Napa Valley at present.

    Coming out of the haze – last 4 weeks straight have been smoky, smoggy and generally terrible air quality in the Napa Valley. Finally today 7/29/08) we had a really bright blue sunny day and was perfect for photography with an explosion of the normal expected summertime blue and green colors.

    Seeing veraison happening all over the valley now -and hillsides.
