Hello and welcome.

Thanks, what varieties do you have in England? Are they grown there or imported?

That's exactly what I thought. Your first bottle/wine is always a big hit!.

Thanks for joining and welcome. Feel free to ask any questions you have.

Welcome aboard and I say the same as others. First kit / wine made is always good if for no other reason you made it yourself. I know our first one didnt last 3 months ( Shsssssss! I have one bottle hidden away so it will ager for a year)

Larry, I grew up near Hurdland, but live now in Arizona. I know a few people in that part of the country growing wine grapes (hybrids, mostly). You're almost too far north to reliably produce some varieties, but there are still lots of choices. Do you think you'd ever want to have your own vines?

Don't forget to put your spot on the map. I'm printing out a copy when it's filled up. Wine cellar wall candy!:br

Tom - I'm mostly interested in...well, all wines. I'm ready to explore. I have barely scratched the surface as far as getting to know the well known varieties. Have never tasted a variety I didn't like, but have had some wine
(commercial and homemade) I didn't like. My grandpa used to make wine from anything he could get his hands on.

Greg G. - Howdy, I grew up in Edina. I would like to grow some grapes, but I'm not too sure about my soil. I live west of town near the state park on this old white oak clay soil.
