Last year my Dad taught me the art of wine making. He had been telling me for years how to do it but everytime we tried to make some my grapevine yielded squat. Well it did make grapes but so few the birds beat us to them. Last year a fair amount of grapes were produced and I started my training. This year my Dad is leaving it all up to me so I learn how to make wine on my own. And to see if I have his skill as well. This year so much went on that the grapevine was neglected but it grew to monster proptions anyways! And it has produced more grapes than my Dad and myself included had expected! It is crazy! But due to the amount of work put into the vine (zero) and I didn't water it either... the grapes came out for free lol. And what I have harvested in the pics is not even half of what is still out there. The vine even climbed a nearby tree ad there are some beautiful looking bunches of grapes up there. Here's my champenal harvest for this year. Still have more to cut though and plenty that will ripen in a few more weeks!
