non fruiting grape vine

Another year passes and still not a grape on my vine!
beautiful lush growth but nothing else.
what am I doing wrong?  Is it sterile?   For the big chop if I can't find out the reason!!

    Hi Gail  :)

    What's the variety, how old is it, where's it growing and what's your pruning regime?

    Some photos would be helpful  :)

    bought years ago so dont know variety other than its an eating one. Have tried various pruning regimes over the years with no success.
    Looking very healthy outside against garden wall, healthy trunk with established side branches supported on wire. have tried winter pruning on side branches to a leaf bud and last year barely pruned it at all but no difference. masses of healthy growth this year but not a sign of any fruit!

    It's a mystery ... do you feed it?  I know the big old vine at Hampton Court is reputed to have its roots in the remains of a long passed donkey ... not something everyone has access to I admit.

    Mine's a Boskoop Glory, planted about 6 years ago and for the past three years we've had a really good crop from it and it looks to be promising the same this year.  Sorry ... don't mean to rub it in.   :/
