Homegrown zinfandel grapes, wine?

2 years ago

We planted a zinfandel grape vine 2 years ago. This is second year its bearing fruit. Last year we let it sit late and they became raisins more or less. This year grapes are bigger in size, are turning black-blue in color, but some grapes are dropping from tree. Yet they haven't become very sweet. Should we let them sit on vine longer? They have big seeds too, so not really great for salads and such. Would like to try making wine, but we don't have a big yield and not sure where to start. Any ideas what can we do with them? If anyone has tips of making wine from small batch of grapes, please pass along those. Thanks.
