The most important day of the year is the day we pick the grapes. It sets in motion the annual harvest and it also determines the kind of wine we will make.
In deciding harvesting time It's good to use your senses but it's also important to measure. We need to measure sugar content, pH, and acidity level. Grapes are mostly water and sugar which will ferment to make wine.
Brix is a term that the wine industry uses to measure the sugar content of grapes. Brix level helps to estimate the alcohol level of our wine.
