Niagara Grape on Snooth

  • I used to spend a LOT of time on snooth, but a job assignment took me away for awhile.  I am seeing some new faces, and some old.  As one who is catching up, I would like to hear from some new people here.   I think/hope we all share not only a love for wine, but a desire to share our experience.  Welcome, new Snoothers!

  • I would like to gather others opinions as to whether they think that a serious wine could be made from these grapes. Do you think that an expert wine maker could make a serious wine using these grapes. Or are they just to be considered table grapes.  My question is : Can a serious wine be made with table grapes?
