Northern Grapes Project Progress Reports
The Northern Grapes Project officially started in September 2011. In this first year of a five-year project, our project team has completed the first season of field studies (49 experiments involving field studies at 12 universities and several commercial sites), and winemaking trials (203 fermentation lots) are underway. Data from the project baseline survey of growers and winery owners was collected from 600 respondents, and economists have initiated studies of tasting room customer satisfaction, consumer profiles, and tourism associated with wineries. The first Northern Grapes Symposium at the Minnesota Grape Growers Association Cold Climate Conference, six outreach webinars, three newsletters, 26 presentations and 25 field days reached over 1850 participants in the 12 states involved in the project and beyond. Outreach information is posted on the project website and the eXtension Grape Community of Practice. The project is currently funded through September 2013 and the project team hopes to submit a renewal for the remaining three years of the project, pending completion of a new farm bill by the US Congress.
