Wade Posted July 29, 2018 Share Posted July 29, 2018 We usually get a good crop of grapes each year - enough for about 5 gallons of wine. This year though has been a disappointment. Although we had what looked like being a bumper crop of grapes before the really hot weather set in, once the temperatures in the roof of the conservatory started reaching 50+ C (the maximum being 54 C !!!) a good proportion of the crop turned to raisins on the vine. We did manage to salvage a few though but probably not enough to even make a couple of bottles ?. We have just harvested about half of what we have left growing Still a few left on the vine to pick in a few weeks Vines love the heat but this year has just been too much OTT. Roll on 2019 - which will of course be a vintage year Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
