    Sorry for not providing sources for the grapes. Let me give you a couple
now. And if you have trouble finding Valiant, substitute Frontenac, a new
cultivar out of Minnesota that is looking good for northern climates. I do
need to warn you that nurseries are being inundated with orders. The wine
grape industry is booming right now all over the Midwest so there are tight
supplies of almost everything.
