Organic gardening is my hobby and I am particularly fond of grapes. I like table grapes, jam, juice, and wine. I make all of these from my Organic grapes. Sharing what I learn is a joy of mine - hence this website.

My first grapevines were planted about ten years ago. They were awful - quite diseased and the grapes rotted before they were ripe. However, I have learned a lot since then and now get wonderful grapes Organically with no sprays. However, I want to add new cultivars and am doing these trials to learn which additions will do well without sprays.
