Wine making is serious business. The process begins in the vineyard, budding, flowering, canopy management are all steps a long the way. When the grapes seem ready to pick another problem to worry about, pick to soon and the grapes might not have reached their peak of ripeness, leaving a thin acidic wine. Wait too long and if it rains you end up with plum waterlogged grapes and a watered down wine. So you take a gamble and pick the grapes at the ultimate moment of peak ripeness.
