One you probably need to check the date and time on your machine. It looks
like you're several days off (when you look
at postings on the ibiblio site, they are listed in machine time order)

I'm pretty sure that Stubbins is Steuben. Stueben is a
blue lambrusca type with a spiciness to the taste. It can
be used for wine. Large bunches, but I don't think it's nearly as productive
as say Concord is. Here's a picture of Stueben on GrapePictures.Com

Videls is probably Vidal (aka Vidal Blanc). A good tasting fruity
french-hybrid wine grape. Long, Large green-yellow bunches. The grapes have
somewhat distintive brown flecks on the skin. Very productive. The picture
on appears more pink than what I have ever experienced.

Buchenneaurs. No idea at this point.

I defer to Lon, but I would recommend that you let the the cuttings grow this
year. When you plant them out to the vineyard, cut them back to 2-3 buds.
Thin this growth to the two most vigorous shoots.

Good Luck!
