The fruit has set at Page Springs Cellars in the Verde Valley.  It's a time of watching and waiting for new vineyard manager Melinda Costigan.


We're in the Page Springs Cellars Estate Vineyard where the flagship Syrah grapes are growing.


Costigan is waiting for veraison (color change/fruit softening/sugar production),

Checking for any issues,


Controlling water, and 


Awaiting the coming monsoon rains.
