The Northern Grapes Project is a multi-institutional Coordinated Agricultural Project funded by the USDA’s Specialty Crops Research Initiative, with a multidisciplinary team from 12 universities in collaboration with winery and grape grower associations in ND, SD, MN, NE, IA, WI, IL, NY, VT, CT, and MA.  It focuses on production, processing, and marketing of new cold-climate wine grape cultivars that have spawned new wineries and vineyards in the upper Midwest and Northeast.

The project also sponsors webinars, generally on the second Tuesday of each month.  More webinar info.
