Well our grape vine is getting new shoots which after being dormant is so exciting. This is our first season. Hope it likes Sydney and the possums don't get to the fruit first

Vine grows beautifully all over my pergola, fruits in huge quantities, but very pulpy texture, I made wine from it last year and the results are very refreshing with it's own distinct aroma, very little problem with Downy Mildue
