I was wondering if anyone on here grows their own grapes for wine. My father and I had a discussion about turning some land on the ranch into a little vineyard. With out little knowledge on the subject we knew that hillsides are recommended, so we found a good hill that will get plenty of sunlight. Now we have been trying to find information on what kind of grapes to grow. Being in south central South Dakota we were unsure of what to expect for growing grapes until I found this website: http://sdgrapes.sdstate.edu/grapesd.cfm
. Now we main things we are unsure of is:
What kind of grapes are recommended?
How many should be planted to make 50-100 gallons of wine?
We are hoping to get information about someone who has knowledge/experience with their own vineyard
Thanks in advance,
