Thanks for the tips. Why distilled water? I was planning to use filtered tap water. It tastes good and I use it for brewing, so I figure it's fine for wine.

Thanks for the advice guys! Actually Northernbrewer is one of the places that I've been looking at, as they seem to have a good selection. I've considered pressing, but I'm not sure if I could get quality grapes in Virginia. I planted a couple of vines in my yard last year just to eat, but I don't think they'll yield enough to press.

On a side note, I know that I mentioned Red Wine but my favorite is White Ice Wine. I was thinking about making some of this as well. The first time I had it a lady explained to me how the grapes were harvested with frost on the grapes and pressed while still semi-frozen. I wasn't brewing at the time so I never asked if there was anything different in the fermentation process. Do any of you have experience in making Ice Wine?
I was wondering if there was a particular wine yeast that works best in leaving some residual sweetness in dessert wines.
