Growing cold climate grapes: Vineyard management

The Minnesota grape and wine industry contributes to over $80M in economic activity, and Minnesota grape growers have expressed a need for more introductory and continuing education on the best sustainable viticultural practices.

University of Minnesota Extension and the grape breeding and enology team in the Department of Horticultural Science have developed a free, web-based curriculum to provide quality educational materials on growing cold-hardy grapes in Minnesota. Our goal is to provide a broad understanding of viticultural principles as well as practical application of that knowledge.

This curriculum is perfect for training new staff or reviewing the basics.

North Central Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NCR-SARE) has provided funding and support for this curriculum.
