Last year we had a full compliment of grapes and this year,because of the very cold winter and extended cold this spring, we have none. Does this happen to you with your vines? Dad planted our grapes in the 70's when he was making wine and in recent years we have had two different strains that have been getting sweeter each year. This the vine is bare. Should it be?

It may have been from the exceptional cold. We have many vines without fruit in the NW Michigan area, due to cold injury. Since I do not know the specific varieties you have I can't provide much more information.
