I passed two small tractors today with spraying equipment. One was on the road to somewhere and the other was in a field spraying the grapes. I've seen this scene before and never thought much about it but today the light came on. What is the chemical that they spray on grapes and when does it get taken off.

There is very little rain here in the summer so it doesn't come off in the rain. Spain had no rain during the summer months and the chemicals must have stayed on the grapes there too.

When they harvest the grapes, they put them in trailers and take them to the vats for the pressing. Actually, they get their first pressing in the trailer and are dumped directly into the pit for pressing.

I guess this means that the chemicals go into the wine.

Does anyone know what chemicals are used and what the effects are on serious wine drinkers. Maybe that's why they say we live longer drinking wine. We're bug proofed.

Just a thought.
