Disappearing proteins

I am working with grapevine.
Isn't it nice when you do a native protein extraction and your proteins which should be water soluble end up in your pellet and not in solution. But it gets better if the extraction is done with tabaco plants the protein stays in solution. Additionally the extraction works with grapevine as well but only occasionaly something like one out of three extractions.

Has anybody got any ideas how to fix this problem? I sure ran out of ideas apart from taking my plants and throwing them against the next wall that is.
