Cabernet Grapes Ripening in 30 Seconds

When the conditions are right, the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes growing in our To Kalon vineyard go from hard green berries to ripe purple grapes in just a matter of days. This process is known as verasion, and it's when the grapes develop their full color, flavor and sugar level. It's the last step in the grape's life cycle before we harvest. This video shows five days of verasion compressed into 30 seconds during some very hot weather in late July.
