Default What grapes to plant

Well I just moved to a new house that has a small orchard I just bought some concord grape vines. What other grapes should I get for wine making?

Where are you located?
What kind of wine do you like?
What wine grapes are grown in your area?

Where in Ohio?

Ohio is borderline for a number of wine varieties. If you are in the Ohio river valley or on the lake you've got a different set of choices that if you are in the snow belt or in the plains.

Do a google for ohio wines. There is a good website promoting wine making in Ohio. It has alot of good information about wine varieties that do well in our climate. I don't remember the web site currently. I don't have the room or sun for wines so i havn't planted any myself.
