Dead Fred Verasion

We stopped by Dead Fred Vineyard today, and caught the last bit of verasion (color change in berries). You can see a little bit of pink in some of the berries.

Then there were some vines that looked like this:

You might remember the frost pictures we posted. Well, this is one of those vines. We are really happy the vines that got hit are doing well, but there isn’t any fruit on them. Luckily it was a small area, and not the whole vineyard.

We walked most all the vineyard, and everything really looks nice. A lighter than normal crop year (as it seems to be everywhere in Napa), but really nice looking fruit. – Skippy
