Wine grapes have small berry like fruit with seeds. The flavor and color of wine is derived primarily from the skins.
The best locations for planting grape vines are on slopes with good drainage and poor fertility.
Select a variety based on your climate and the type of wine desired. Find out if there are any vineyards in your area and what variety they grow. If they are having success with a specific variety you probably will as well.
Keep in mind each vine yields an average of one gallon of wine, but plant extra to make up for fruit loss from birds and other causes.
