Default Grape Selection

New to making wine and wondering how to choose a type of grape to use? Is there a way to know how many pounds of grapes, per type, would be needed per gallon of wine?

Each wine grape makes a specific wine, so if you want a pinot, you use pinot grapes.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
