Cool Grapes Benefit Minnesota Wine

According to a study done by the University of Minnesota, there were a total of seven Minnesota wineries in 1995.  By 2007 that number had almost quadrupled, and the most recent tally stands at thirty seven.  The increase is due largely to an improved ability by Minnesota growers to manage cold climate conditions.   KFAI’s Jake Hodge  says the growers have had a significant amount of help from the University of Minnesota's cold hardy grapes program.
