Johnny and his lovely wife planted two Pinot Noir vines in the backyard! Yes, that is me and my husband. This is our first time growing wine. Our favorite is Shiraz, but unfortunately it doesn't grow in our region.
I read Pino Noir is a fickle plant, it doesn't like a lot of sun (WIN)...I live in Washington State. I grows well in poor soil with good drainage.
The wine is a year or so out, we are still learning the process. Right now my only concern is growing the grapes.
Other than that, we brainstormed label ideas.
