Remember all those grapes!!


Remember all those grapes!!

We had over 150 bunches of grapes, mostly red, and a few white, decided to make grape juice, bit slow and fiddly, but, oh the taste!! so worth the effort.

Crissue, lol. Dottydaisy2, I admire your work and for sure you drank one of the healthiest drinks in the world.
Now I will be physician who has some vineyards family tradition - the most healthiest vines - regarding CVS - are red vines grown in countries with a lot of sunny days. So far, the favourite for more then 1000 years is Cabernet Sauvignon.
