Wine grape for the table

BriAnDaren Ottawa, On Zone 5June 17, 2014

I'm new to growing grapes and am looking for some opinions.

According to Wiki, wine grapes tend to be sweeter than table grapes but have less flavor. Is this true?

Other than 'less flavor', are there any other issues involved in using wine grapes for the table?

My grapes are protected inside a hoop house over winter and I have room for a few more grape vines. Any recommendations for a really sweet grape will be greatly appreciated.

Often wine grapes have tough, slip-skin and seeds that don't easily separate from the flesh.
