Believe it or not

There are still a few grape bunches out there. These are not wine grapes, I think, but grapes that are meant for eating. They grow on the side of the stone storage building in the vineyard and are not harvested, except by people who walk past and by wildlife.

One of the last of this season's grape bunches.

Most of the grapes on these vines are dried up or rotten, but this bunch escaped an early demise. Still, with the freezing temperatures we're having now, I'm sure it's not long for this world.


  1. Even if they aren't pleasing to the taste (though I hope they might be) they certainly are a visual delight.

  2. Yes, I am also surprised they haven't been frozen... or maybe they have and are just tough. In any case, it's a beautiful photo.

  3. Could they be used for Eiswein? That's vin de glace according to Wikipedia.

    1. That was my first thought.
      Ice wine is delicious and there's probably enough for a small glass!

  4. The colors look beautiful on my iPad this morning- some joy!

  5. That would be a nice afternoon snack.


Tell me what you think!
