Veraison in eastern Washington

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

In the past week, numerous vineyards have reported seeing veraison - the changing of color of the grapes - in eastern Washington. Reports include Sagemoor Chardonnay (7/16, approximately ten days ahead of last year) in the Columbia Valley, Ferguson Merlot (7/22) in the Walla Walla Valley, and Seven Hills Sangiovese (7/22) in the Walla Walla Valley, which is pictured here (photo courtesy of Sadie Drury).

It can only mean one thing - harvest is right around the corner!
