In Dr. Hernández-Montes’ paper, the researchers employed a stratified sampling method to group berries by firmness and skin color in order to study the sequence of physical and chemical changes during veraison. Vineyard sampling often occurs at veraison, but individual berries within a single cluster ripen at different rates, complicating our ability to understand ripening. This study outlines a method for studying berry changes that occur during this period, which sheds light on this pivotal viticultural process.
