“A group of grapes is commonly called a bunch or a cluster. Grapes are a type of berry with a similar texture to blueberries. There are approximately 60 different species of grapes and more than 8,000 varieties. Some varieties of grapes are seedless.

Red grapes are actually healthier than green grapes because they have a higher flavonoid content and are therefore richer in antioxidants than green grapes. The flavonoids cluster in the darker skin of the red grape.”

The wine you see in the picture was made from the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, 2014 harvest.  It is a Chilean wine produced by the Ventisquero winery in this South American country.  I found it to be too too bitter and with a high content of alcohol.  My wife has decided to use it for cooking purposes.

This image ends the wine-grape project.  Needless to say it was lots of fun and made me aware of the difficulties surrounding the handling of unwanted reflections on glass.  Need to work more on these specific photography skills.  So much to learn, so little time.

Good Day!
