5. Pick your grapes. Once you've done the research, committed to the work, and decided on your plan of action, it's time to pick a grape. While there's a lot of back-and-forth about the best way to do this, Richmond has a rather simple and practical suggestion: "If you are intending to make wine out of the fruit, I would plant what you enjoy drinking," he says. "As a rule of thumb, whites do better in cool climate and reds in warmer.  Whites are also easier to grow. Table grapes need lots of heat, which is why most of them are grown from Fresno to the Mexican border. But other than that, grow what you like." Next: Two books to get you started.
