Hi there
I'm latchy aka Tony or Anthony if I've been naughty!
The reason I'm here is due to the grapevine in the greenhouse a chardonnay according to the label on it in Aldi.

I suspect it may not be as described.
But no matter the aim is to make a couple of bottles from its harvest.
As a complete novice some advice will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to The Forum. athumb..

First advice is to read up on pruning your vine! Over in France, at the end of the growing season they cut the vines back to what is termed a "finger and thumb" configuration.

The first time you see it you wonder how anything could possibly grow on the tiny stump that they leave behind; but come the following Spring ....! Sheer magic!

As they say "From little acorns mighty oaks do grow!" so who knows, in a few years you may own your own vineyard!

Enjoy! athumb..
