It's very unusual to see so many grapes still on the vines at La Renaudière this late in October.
What a bizarre year 2013 has been, weatherwise.
I took these photos about 36 hours ago (Thursday afternoon). The sun had come back out earlier in the day.
Morning lows are in the mid-50s F these days, with afternoon highs approaching 70
(that's lows of 12º or 13º C and highs of 16º to 19º C).
I guess these grapes, whatever kind they are, will benefit from our current warm daytime temperatures and
pale afternoon sunshine by continuing to ripen before being made into red wine.
