Hello HadEnuff, I've been a winemaker and brew meister for about 7 years. I am humbled by your reach out. While I occasionally browse on the forums, I don't visit them much.
I live south of Pittsburgh, PA and have the good fortune to help out at two local wineries now that I'm retired. The other good fortune I have, is the ability to get fresh quality grapes from California and Chile during wine seasons. DW and I also started to go to California annually to visit wineries and vineyards. I make about 180 gallons/year, and share most of it with family and friends.
