Happy Fourth of July From Raffaldini Vineyards

Harvest Preparations Begin!
Our Vineyard Crew has been diligently maintaining the vineyards in anticipation of veraison, the final step in the maturation of this year's vintage. Here you can see a hedger in action as we cut off excess growth from the vines. This allows the vines to put more effort into ripening the fruit by not having to maintain all that excess growth. Following hedging, our crew comes through each row and pulls leaves from around the fruit zone by hand, opening up the fruit to more sunlight and cooling breezes, keeping the fruit clean and dry and helping to concentrate and develop sugars and flavors. Keep an eye on the fruit this month as we quickly approach harvest time and the grapes begin turning ripe, purple hues.
