THE GRAPE GAME is not only fun to play but also educational, teaching you about the different tasks involved in growing grapes, which is the first of many steps involved in producing an excellent wine.
THE GRAPE GAME can easily be played among friends or family members. Children at 8 or 9 years old will enjoy the game…
as much as their parents and grandparents!

You will learn, for instance:
– what is involved in shoot removal, tying-up and trimming… and under which conditions these actions are performed;
– the various types of fertilization and their usefulness;
– the favouring weather conditions which lead to mildew, grey rot and other vine diseases;
– and so on…
