Grapes but no wine

IMG_1031-1 We have one grape vine.  It is loaded with grapes this year, even in the heat.  We keep it watered and it seems happy to be alive.  Typically, we did not write down the variety of grapevine but we do know the white juice is sweet and delicious.

After I picked these grapes, I felt maybe they all weren’t all as ripe as they could be.  The grapes in the picture are only about a third of the total I picked and there are still quite a few out there.  I’m letting the rest ripen a little more. 

I think we’ll just drink the juice.  Winemaking is an art that I’ll leave to those who know what they are doing.
