Baby BB Grapes
With vineyard nearly finished bloom (only La Crescent tends to lag behind a bit), this year’s fruit is set. Every grape that we’ll pick this fall has taken form. They’re babies now, just waiting for sun and summer heat to ripen. This is the beginning of what we call the “BB stage”– small, hard, and green.
But oh! what a few months can do. They’ll grow, swell, turn color, develop flavor, accumulate sugars, and finally become the yummiest grapes you’ve ever tasted (and then become the yummiest wine!). Stay tuned right hear for updates through the season.
