The Q&A Archives: Grapes for Homemade Wine

Question: I am interested in growing grapes to make homemade red wine. Do you have any suggestions in what type of grape to start with and how much sunlight do they need?

Answer: Grapes should be planted in full sun well away from the competing roots of trees; in addition, a gently sloping location is preferred because it provides good air circulation. You might wish to contact the local County Extension office (tel. 560-4150) for specific information about wine grape varieties best suited to your area along with your locally recommended spray schedule for grapes. Good luck with your project!
