Fruit Set: Fun on today’s vineyard tour

June 14th, 2014

Each Spring the growth cycle of our vines begin with bud break. In Paso Robles, this stage begins around March/April when tiny buds on the vine start to swell until shoots grow from the buds. This is when the first sign of green in the vineyard arrives.  After bud break the process of flowering begins with little flower clusters appearing at the end of the small shoots looking like buttons.  Soon after, the flowers begin to grow to an observable size. It is during this stage that the pollination and fertilization of the grapevine takes place with the resulting product being a grape berry. Fruit set follows flowering almost immediately when the fertilized flower develops a seed and then a berry to harbor that seed. In Paso Robles, this normally takes place in May/June. This stage is important as it decides the potential crop yield. Following fruit set, the berries are unripe, firm, and very bitter. They have little sugar and elevated acids. They begin to grow to about half  of their final size when they enter this stage of veraison. This stage signals the beginning of the ripening process which will be discussed during the next phase of our vineyard tour series.
