"Vanessa" is one of the hardier red seedless grape varieties. With juicy crisp red grapes that are medium is size and make a compact cluster make this grape great for fresh eating, wine, jams or for decoration in the garden! This variety was developed in Ontario. 

Grapes are a vigorous growing vine and will need to be supported by trellis/ obelisk/ fence/ arbour. As they tend to get powder mildew try to plant where they will get some air flow. This is a self pollinating variety and can produce fruit up to 20 years with proper care. Keep out of winter windy areas and try to put in an area you know gets good snow coverage (natural cold insulator). There is pruning necessary to maintain your grape plant to produce fruit.
