Veraison [ver-ay-zun]. Noun. The stage of grape berry development that marks the beginning of ripening when the grapes change from their hard green state to their soft and coloured form. During veraison the sugar volume in the berry and its size increase and the acidity decreases. The change in color marks the replacement of green chlorophyll with the darker pigmented anthocyanins that will produce the complex fruit flavors in the grape as well as the wine.
