    Hello from Salt Lake City, Utah

    We are about 5900 ft. A couple miles past Ruth's Diner then up into Emigration Oaks. Maybe I'll buy a couple of vines and test. Deer would decimate garden if it didn't have some fencing. Past couple of nights 33 degrees for low. We have a south south-east facing slope.

    Hello from Salt Lake City, Utah

    WOW, very cool. I thought about planting on my hillside in Emigration Canyon but concerned the deer would eat it all and I don't really want to put up fencing.

    Limited wine storage space what do you do?

    HA!!! This is an easy one. Just drink faster. No really. In my wine area i built a cabinet that will store about 150 bottles of my wine and about 200 bottles of other wine. This room is on the lowest level of the house (not under ground) and stays at about 75 in the summer and 65 in the winter.

    What was the first wine you made?

    Wine Expert Merlot. Bought beginners kit for wine making and got $20 discount on the WE kit. As we pulled away from the store, my wife looked at me and said "You will never make a good wine." I think that over the past 3-4 years she has eaten (drunk?!?!) her words quite often. :ib
