So much of this year has been spent trying to keep the vines in check - they are obviously very happy in their new home. It is sometimes difficult to know how well they are doing but having visited a couple of other sites there can be little doubt that we will be producing some healthy fruit next year as long as the weather stays good. We have a few bunches this year and we'll keep some of the riper ones as an experiment to see what sort of problems we may encounter. They are just starting veraison ( changing colour and accumulating sugar) and we may be make a few litres of wine from them- strictly for our own consumption.
