Off the Grapevine

Like last year, it was a full-moon harvest. Unlike last year, I didn’t bother with netting. Still ended up with 21 kgs of grapes though. So it turns out there was more than enough to go round for both me and the local wood pigeons.

I’ve now got just under 4 gallons on the go in the fermentation bin. Once the pips and skins get strained off I’m expecting to have around 3 gallons for a slower fermentation in the demijohns. Which, I’m pleased to say, should mean around 18 bottles of organic, sulphite-free wine to look forward to.
