Monday - The grapes of Den Hoorn

As amazing as it may seem, it`s actually possible to eat grape locally produced in NL.

In a small, biodynamic greenhouse of Midden-Delfland, a husband and wife team grows several varieties of table grapes.

Although they are behind glasses to protect them from bad weather, the grapes grow according to their natural rhythm, influenced by the weather outside.

I would think that, since this year we are having it so good weather-wise, the harvest will be closer to September then October.

They are open for guided tours for groups from 10 people up, with the chance to savour their juicy products, combined with those of nearby farms.

The shop is open from August till November and there's an open day on the second weekend of September.

Grapes in Samatorca, near Trieste (not NL).
