I have recently retired and now have time (between fly fishing trips) to do some work around my hobby farm. I would like to grow some grapes for wine making. An old friend who makes his own wine gave me 150 cuttings of White Baccus last spring and I have managed to get about 100 of them through the summer, I hope to plant them next spring. I would have prefered Reisling but I am told it won't do well here. My wife likes dark, bold red wine so my question is: What is the best grape variety, for the Ladysmith area, for making such a wine. I have deep sandy loam in the area I want to grow them. Thanks for your help.
