Re: [wine-52] White wine grapes

Hi John,

Your grapes are most likely not suitable for wine.  Most commercial vineyards are located in eastern Washington where the weather is more suited for wine grapes.  My advice is to pick the grapes and juice them by using a potato masher.  Wash them first.  It's a bit of work but it could be fun and you'll have some good healthy fruit juice.  Otherwise, you can harvest and compost them or leave them on the vine for the critters (not the best idea).

Best of luck.

One of our members has a unique problem. She has some white grape vines that are ready to harvest. If you can use them, please contact me directly and we'll see about giving these grapes a good home.

I recently purchased a new home that happens to have a grape vine. Turns out the grapes are white wine grapes and they are ripe. I have quite a bit and would love to give them to someone that can use them. Although I do drink wine I do not know how to make it. The grapes are ripe and need to be used NOW. Please let me know if you or anyone in your group would be interested. The grapes are free the only catch is that they are ripe and need to be picked now.
