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). The wings of the grapes were developing later than the center of the grapes, and by thinning or removing the wings early in the growing season, the grape cluster should ripen evenly and result in a uniform, ripen cluster—which in turn makes a high-quality Petit Verdot wine for blending with Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon.
