Norton's Virginia

This, so far, is the leading grape for red wine, and its reputation

here and in the entire West is now so fully established, that it would

be difficult indeed to persuade our people into the belief, that any

other grape could make a better red wine. It is healthy and uniformly

productive, and will be safe to plant, I think, in nearly all the

Western States. I rather doubt that our Eastern friends will succeed in

making a first class wine from it, as I think their summers are too

short, to develop all its good qualities. Will succeed in almost any

soil, but attains its greatest perfection in southern slopes with

somewhat strong soil.
