In viticulture (grape-growing), veraison is the onset of ripening. The term is originally French (véraison /veʀɛzɔ̃), but has been adopted into English use. The official definition of verasion is "change of color of the grape berries". It is the point in the growing season when ripening grapes begin to soften and change color from green to either red or yellow, depending on the variety. It also signals in a shift in the development of the grape, which now begins the long process of becoming a big, sexy wine, which will cause your taste buds to climax with every mouth-watering sip.
