|It sounds like a fungal disease to me. You can spray a fungicide on your grape plants to protect them before mildew becomes a problem. Either a copper based or a sulfur based fungicide will work. ( Bayleton is one brand name) Be sure to apply according to label directions. Repeat sprays are usually necessary. Good luck with your grape harvest!
