    I live in Hillier, Ontario which is part of the Prince Edward County appellation. Given the number of commercial wineries around here I thought it'd be fun to grow some grapes and make some wine.

    I've made a few juice bucket wines (Festa) with ok-ish results (needs more acid!). Currently have a few carboys of Chardonnay on the go made with grapes I lucked into from a local grower. Also have some cider bubbling away made from some wild apples.

    Also I planted some grape vines in the spring, all hybrids (Marquette, Petite Pearl, Frontenac Noir + Blanc) so hopefully I'll be making wine from my own grapes in a few years.

    Anyways I still have a lot to learn which is why I'm here. I really don't know what I'm doing but its worked out so far

    WMT is a good place to ask questions. Lots of experienced folks to learn from and a range of experience from northern grapes to fruits to kits.
    Good fermenting!
