    Petite pearl

    I have 6 vines of petite Pearl slow growing they are! And as far as the wine I'm not sure the vines are still young. But I made some wine from my Marquette and I got rave reviews from everyone that had some! Keep in mind it's not a heavy wine like a Merlot or Cabernet. Light and fruity:h
