Hi y'all and welcome to today's post! So today, we went to the property where our 3 year old (or older) grapes are, and guess what??? We brought 2 different kinds of grapes home (one Cabernet Franc and 3 Muscat), and we used the refractometer to test the grapes' brix (sugar) levels. I wonder what they are! Here are the stats:
The Cabernet Franc got a level of 19 (supposed to be 24, give or take a few), and the Golden Muscat got a 17 (supposed to be 20-24)! Okay, in English, The sugar levels slowly get higher, making the grape sweeter, and more appropriate for harvest. Would you REALLY like a sour (like LEMON-PUCKER sour) wine? Personally, I don't even enjoy my LEMONADE like that (I don't/can't drink). We harvested this upcoming weekend a year ago, and it is probably going to happen again, judging by the rate of the increasing brix level. Thank you SO much for reading, and please stay tuned!
Hi! I'm Saige, and I enjoy Marvel and DC movies, family comedy and action movies, books, and I love writing! and my father Giuseppe is an award-winning winemaker. He grows our grapes, as well as purchases them from other local vineyards. Although I'm not old enough to drink, I enjoy assisting my dad with his wine, from planting the vine, to bottling the wine! I will hopefully be able to share with y'all our day-to-day story. Thank you so much!
