Gathering The Fruit To Make Wine

For this purpose, the grapes should hang as long as it is safe to allow

them; for it will make a very material difference in the quality of the

wine, as the water will evaporate, and only the sugar remain; and the

flavor or the bouquet will only be fully developed in fully ripened

fruit. For gathering, use clean tin or wooden pails; cut the stems as

short as possible, and clip or pinch out all unripe or rotten berries,

leaving none but fully ripe berries on the bunch. The further process

will be described under "wine making."
