After the flowering stage in the vineyards, you can witness the “Fruit Set” event, where the plant chooses the flowers which will be transformed in fruits and the first grapes begin to grow.

The Fruit Set is one of most important stages of the grapevine life cycle, that once again shows the wisdom of Mother Nature. It takes the plant to free itself from the surplus flowers in order to reach the best quality to bring to maturation, keeping the balance between resources and fruits. A phenomenon of auto conservation where the vine avoids to disperse the nutrients by an extreme fruit production. Following this, there will be the veraison stage where we will see the turning of colors in the grapes that are developing.
