The Concord vines were so lovely in 2020. But wait.......Something is missing!
Yes, unfortunately almost all the grapes in Wise were lost due to three nights of 28-degree weather in May 2020. Sadly we had no 2020 Grape U-pick, just salt to the wound of that year!
No apples, pears, peaches, or plums either! The freeze even killed the gooseberries! We became so desperate for homemade applesauce, that we paid $32 for a peach basket of apples. (But so worth it!)
We did have some fruit at our Grace Vineyards in Russell County, so thankfully we did have enough to produce more wine!
We really missed the hundreds of families, friends and neighbors stopping by in September for our amazingly delicious grapes, and are hoping for a bumper crop in 2021! So far, it's looking great!
Thanks again to everyone for helping us by continuing to shop local! We think we all deserve a bumper crop 2021, in more ways than one. Cheers!
