    First time poster... I’m dabbling in the idea of starting up some vines in my backyard to try my hand at making homemade wine. I live in Ladner but not too sure of the soil I have, as well as what type of grapes to choose. Is there any advice out there?
    Thanks in Advance,
    Corey

    Hi Corey and welcome,

    There are a few older discussion threads about this, have a look at this one (the info won't have changed much):

    Grape vines for wine

    Art's Nursery (note: linking is not an endorsement) mentions several wine grapes: An Introduction To Growing Grapes

    Hi Daniel,
    Today I took a soil sample... from what I can understand, the PH is 6.5-7.... the N is very low, the P is medium to medium high and the Potash is medium to high...
    Thoughts on types of vines to plant?
    Regards,
    Corey
