Pharmacist by day, aspiring vintner by night. Tried my hand at growing grapes for the first time ~7 years ago (gewürztraminer) without any experience and it went as well as you might expect. Between climate issues and fungal takeover ended up pulling up the crop (27 vines) and going with a more cold-hearty red varietal - marquette. Year 4 for these vines and the fruit looks great! Will have to forgo harvest this year, though, since I didn't read the fine print on the fungicide label (mancozeb with a 66 day PHI). Looking forward to being part of the community and learning from everyone.
