Grapes are left on the vine until they freeze. Ice grapes are used for a very special wine, Ice Wine, a desert wine.
If ever you come across
"Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Spätlese", be sure to take it home with you.
I was up at the crack of dawn.
Because I noticed that birds had discovered our Himrod Ice Grapes.
We had to pick them. Can't wait for the frost and snow.
Raisins they will be.
We saved a few for table grapes.
The basket is more than 30 years old (see below).
Off to the Bank goes Mr G. All come out to pick their favorite squash. (Who is in charge inside?)
The basket (above) brings back wonderful memories. The La Mamounia Hotel in Marrakesh filled this basket with exotic fruits to fortify us for the long drive to Casablanca. That was more than 30 years ago. Have a great weekend, dear friends, Gina
Here I share with you my obsession with Italian Renaissance Ceramics. I decided that painting them would not be so difficult. So I set about learning. My blog is about living the simple country life, tales from our travels and, of course, my hand painted ceramics.
