Weather alone does not garantee a good harvest, I see it with our neighbors who try hard to grow their own grapes…

Here in Canada there are parts of the country that it would probably be just about impossible to grow grapes, but then we also have some regions that are renowned for their grape growing and wine producing abilities. As you kind of touched on – our Ice Wines are probably the wines we Canadians are best known for as they are delicious! This year looks like it might get cooler earlier than normal so our ice wine harvest might be earlier than it normally is ( I believe it most often occurs in December and sometimes even January!).

By: TorAa TorAa Sun, 12 Oct 2008 20:42:49 +0000 We are so “Grapeful” for a fantastic photo of our Blue “Norwegian” Grapes at out Summer House Garden. They are of the type Schybler . Takes several years to give results, like this years. Record harvest- and my mom enjoyed them at her 89th BD this afternoon.
I should be more brutal cutting away weak and late fruits. But, you know, it’s so fascinating to see the Grapes here at 60 degrees North.

I was not aware of the fact Ice Wine is produced in Sweden. Very fascinating. And I love the way you do find facts

My son Niklas, you met him during the 3×20 event, bought some winestocks from Ukraina last year. They can survive down to -40C. But they grow very slowly.

Have a great week to come

Love them best when they’re fresh & firm over here :)
