First Year Grape Vines

Earlier this year we was able to plant muscadine and scuppernong grape vines. Both species are native to the southeastern United States and do very well warm and humid climates. The plan is to brew both grapes separately and to have a small blend. Usually first year grapes have a very small berry yield but all the vines are doing well and have lots of clusters of grapes already growing. They look like they are doing so well, that we've already planned another row to go in for next year.

  1. That's pretty cool. I haven't looked at grapes yet but I have been looking at planting blueberries and raspberries.

  2. I'd be super tempted to eat all of the grapes before I could ever hope to make wine out of them...

  3. oh well i'm looking forward to our grapes
