Now is the time to get ready for the next wine growing season. Vines are coming to life and it won’t be long you’ll need to have your act together.
One of the most useful tools you can have as a wine grower is a refractometer. Refractometers can tell you the sugar level (brix) of your grapes with just a few drops of juice as a sample. By tracking this sugar level of your grapes throughout your vineyard, you’ll be able to know the optimum time to pick.
To lean more about refractometers and how they can help you in the vineyard, you may want to go over some of the past posts on this blog that cover various aspects of refractometers.
