    chatting with another grape grower last evening, probably Concord, Traminette, and some Midwest grapes like Prairie Star, Brianna, or St. Pepin. Everything stopped by a neighbor that doesn't want a winery, but would rather have a Section 8 housing plan. Go figure....

    Sorry to hear that, I got a neighbor like that except I was here first, but he is still a major PITA. He wanted to play hardball so I point blank told him to his face that if the vineyard and winery are not financially feasible I will more than happily sub divide the land and put some of the largest and ugliest houses he has ever seen in his backyard. Been quiet for a year now. Guess he doesn't mind a vineyard so much.

    It'd be really nice if the conversation ended after: "Is it your land? No? Okay, have a nice day then."

    I'd check out some of the newer Minnesota Varieties. I've been pretty pleased with my Itasca and Petite Pearl thus far.
