Just wanted opinions and what u should look out for. Also what's the best time to ferment. I am also in the process of making grape wine in the same method.

Post your exact recipe, ingredients/quantities, mixing methods, gravity readings, etc. There's not much else that can be said without a fair bit more info......

IMO, winter is a good time to ferment. My basement stays at almost exactly 60 degrees.
