It's wine and grape appreication month!

Sunbelt grapes (a V. lubrusca variety similar to Concord) ready to harvest at Kildeer Farms in Kings Mountain, NC on August 5th. These even ripening grapes are an addition to grower Ervin Lineberger's fresh market muscadines and seem to do well in NC. They're really tasty, too, but they ripen uniformly and are only available for about a week in August!

I posted earlier this month about upcoming muscadine grape events, but I somehow missed the announcement that September is Wine & Grape Appreciation month in NC! I can think of several good ways to celebrate!
