2018 Grape Harvest

DSC_0353 (2)

We had wonderful weather for this year’s harvest, the sun shone and it was lovely and warm, almost too warm for carrying crates overflowing with grapes. The wet spring and dry, hot summer made for a bumper crop of both red and white grapes, and we ran out of space in the crates we’d hired, so some bins had to be pressed into service!
