    I've got a couple of vines too, but like @Baldy I don't think I thinned them enough again. They are small and only in the last couple of weeks gaining colour, so i gess thats it size wise.

    Thinning will give less bunches but with bigger grapes. If you're going to extract the juice then lots of small bunches is the same as less but larger bunches

    The rootstock also has quite a large effect on how many berries each cluster will have and how large they will be, if you are looking at growing Regent then you are in luck as quite a bit of research has been done on this grape. With proper rootstock selection you can avoid having to thin them.
