Time to Make Wine

The vine looks healthier this year, growing in places where it hasn't grown for years,recovered from the red-spot leaf disease it's had recently,and with more bunches of good-looking grapes: I have no idea what caused this improvement- maybe a couple of years' good pruning,maybe the visit of the vine doctor earlier this year [he didn't do anything,but maybe his presence was sufficient]. These three bins of grapes trod down to the green bin full of crushed grapes and juice,now covered with a plastic sheet and bubbling away in the coolest room in the house for the next 3-4 days.
