Jordan Winery: Petit Verdot Vineyard Grape Thinning Winemaking Experiment

Jordan Winery Ranch Manager Brent Young discusses and demonstrates a recent viticulture experiment in which the wings of Petit Verdot grape clusters were removed after the grapevines flowered and the berries began to form (fruit set).
