I live in southern California (outside of Los Angeles) and there are no wineries near me except one in san Pedro California. They are starting to get fresh grapes in and soon they will get a lot of fresh wine grapes. When I have called them, they just said you have to call in the morning to see what they will be getting in.
so, here is my question: are there certain variety of wine grapes that are less complicated to make wine from than others. I know that is a loaded question but if I had a basic idea, when I call and he mentioned those varieties, I could get in my car and drive down there early in the morning before they are all sold out.
