In chapter 5 of our series, we return after the topping and the undressing (http://www.elcoto.com/blog/capitulo-iv-manos-que-despuntan-y-desnietan/21/es) to a full vineyard Jose Mari, our artisan, becomes an attentive observer of the bunches during veraison, the stage in which the grapes stop growing to begin their maturation.Our bunches need sunlight and summer heat to carry out this process correctly, and with these elements and the help of Jose Mari, they will change color until they finally reveal that they are ripe.The end of veraison is the most reliable indicator of a very important moment in the life of the vineyard. Do you want to know what it is? We reveal it to you in “Observing Hands”. We hope you enjoy it.
