I have some seeds from some grapes. I would like to use the seeds to raise new plants, but I know nothing about this. Should I dry the seeds in some way? Then stoer them in airtight container or just leave them to the air? Any info on how to process these seeds and then how/when/where to plant them to raise some seedlings would be very much appreciated.

Yes, air dry then plant in soil. If you plan to store the seeds, that's when you'd want an air-tight container. Otherwise, look into propagating by cuttings
