As a homebrewer, I am thinking about taking the plunge into wine making, mainly reds. After reading a bunch, it appears to me that the best bet would be getting grapes instead of juice. I really don't want to put a bunch of months of time into something that I would be disappointed in (not that my tastes are that great).
Living in Washington, it appears that Yakima Valley has a ton of high quality grapes. But, how would a home winemaker get some?
In particular, I am wondering:
What time of year should I look to buy grapes?
Does anyone know of any grape growers friendly to home wine makers?
How much should I get (5-6 gallon batch)? What kind of volume am I talking about transporting - 10 gallon trashcan or bigger?
How long can I store them before I should use them?
What can I expect to pay?
Any other advice for a newb?
Thanks in advance!
