Winemaking starts with a selection of grapes. Have you ever wondered what certain grapes look like on the vine before they are used to make wine? Driving around the Finger Lakes area I have been noticing vineyards hanging heavy with grapes. I was not very familiar with recognizing the particular type of grapes hanging on the vine so I thought it would be interesting to do a little research and share it with you. Over the next few posts I’ll share descriptions on several grapes grown here in the Finger Lakes. These posts will be quite simple just to give a basic knowledge.
