Answer: It sounds like your grape vine may be shading the apple trees too much. Both bearing apples and fruiting grape vines should be pruned fairly hard during the winter and both types of plant also do better in full sun. Most gardeners find that both their apples and their grapes require routine pruning along with a regular spray routine in order to produce good quality fruit on a regular basis. You might wish to contact your County Extension office for information about recommended care for both types of plants in your local area. Their phone number is 268-7644. Good luck with your fruit!
