my brother moved into a new place last year that in the spring/summer produced grapes. this year there aren't any though. does anybody have any idea why it would just stop like that?

    Grapes should be pruned in the winter.

      every winter you need to trim it back to the main stalk. The new growth the following spring will bring on your grape harvest. Leaving old branches will hinder new growth.

      Could have been a late frost that damaged the flowers.
