    8/14/2024 - 9/22/2024

    V?ison Purple Persuasion  Between the Vines Estate Vineyard Tours at Whitman Hill Winery,  August 14th - September 22nd.  One of the most important moments in a grapevine's annual life cycle is the onset of ripening. V?ison occurs when the grapes turn from green to red. The vine alters its focus from energy creation to energy consumption, where the grapes begin to dramatically increase in size as they accumulate sugars and develop aroma compounds.

    We employ various vineyard maintenance practices to yield more quality fruit: "dropping fruit" ensures the remaining clusters receive more nutrients and sugars; trimming away excess leaves slows the rate of ripening to when temperatures are cooler for harvest; and netting more susceptible blocks of the vineyard protects the grapes from birds and insects.

    Color your life purple and persuade your friends and family to come witness the change in the vineyard and impress them with your newly-gained wisdom as we head toward another successful harvest. Luxuriate with a wine tasting and light bites at the Garage Tasting Room before heading off on a wine country adventure. Schedule an estate vineyard tour through our website under the "experience" tab or by calling the tasting room (509)829-3370 directly.
