The Grape Harvest

Our grape harvest has just finished, and this year we had a bumper crop and here are a few photos to share. The bright sunlight casts so many dark shadows, but you will get an idea of what went on. Our grapes are made into wine on the property for our own consumption, (one glass a day, for me) and it is also sold locally. It is mostly made into a wine called green wine Vinho Verde, which is a very light dry wine, and can be either white or red.



 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 
The Vindimas/Grape Harvest, lasted thee days and a hearty meal was provided each day when the wine flowed freely, and much laughter and story telling went on in the company of old friends and neighbours.

How lovely growing your own grapes and making wine. Your ground looks so green and lush. It must be a great occasion each year when the grapes are harvested.

It was really neat to see all your wonderful photos of the grapes and the harvest. That first shot of the purple grapes was so pretty.
I enjoyed the fences and all the photos very much.

Great pictures. What is the variety of grape you grow?

It looks like you own a very old and well established vineyard with both red and white grapes so I assume that there are at least two different types of grapes. Do you know the names of the vines? I would love to share a glass or two with you!
