Frost

Well the frost (freeze where I live) this week did us in. Harvest is now over. Frost kills the leaves, which halted any further ripening. When the leaves are shut down by a killing frost, so is the ripening process.

Whatever grapes were left hanging on the vines now have to be picked and processed. The vines now go into hibernation for the winter and await the spring bud.
