Does any one here grow grapes... I was curious about the best structure for training them up to be nice and tall...
Im getting 3, what is the best method for supporting them?
We have a grape vine growing on a fig tree.
Do you want them growing overhead on an arbor you can stand under? That's what the old Italians around here do. Commercial growers don't do that; they grow them lower on wires. I'm sure I can steer you to some good websites. What varieties will you have?

Well i live in wine country here in western NY and the wineries grow them on woodin post in the growned with wire connected to each other and they grow on them. I would think that reisland(wine grape), for eating i would recommend concord and niagara grapes.
I live in upstate New York, about an hour north of Canandaigua, which I think is pretty wine-crazy. We have a huge grape thing that grows over a patio on this giant trellis, and makes tons and tons of grapes every year. Though, they're sort of wine grapes and don't taste too sweet.
I think we got one Wine grape, and 2 eating grapes.
I love wine, i just need to be able to actually make it, right now thats with the help of my mom, for obviously reasons I got a couple hybrids from Gurnies i think. (IN MY state its legal for me to drink as long as i dont go over the limit and its given to me by my parent)
I think i like the idea of the one that grows over. More space for it to fruit. and easier to get fruit?
Sort of. Depends if you have a latter or not. The grapes sorta drop like crazy in late summer and get all over the patio, and the only way to get rid of 'em is to either wait til they dry and brush them away, or spray 'em with a hose.
that stinks why don't you just eat them before they fall off?
I mean I don't know about you but the slightly unripe ones are my favorite!!!
