The grapes

Our grapes are spectacular this year, I must say. Considering they have been through years of neglect, on this second year of ‘new life’ we gave them, our vines have fully recovered. Yes we lost a few vines in between, and Steve and I promised each other that we will replant them with new vines come autumn, but overall the vineyard looks healthy.

We have to consider what to do with the harvest. Well, the normal thing to do with grapes is wine. But as we are amateurs (yet!), we keep our options open. Making wine ourselves would be a lot of fun, and we want to do it organic way, so we’ll see. For now I leave you with this picture of ripening grapes in early August.
