Growing grapes in northern tiers presents many challenges. There are thousands of grape varieties that have been cultivated for wine across the globe. Most of us have only had a chance to taste a small handful of vinifera grapes that grow in moderate climates. These, of course, are the Merlots, the Cabernets, and the Chardonnays, etc. But grapes are indigenous to almost every part of the world, including the frozen north. A great deal of research has gone in to breeding grapes with exceptional wine qualities that can withstand harsher climates and ripen well. And wine grapes are being grown successfully in northern Europe and across the Northern US and Canada. Join us as we explore some of the delicious wines that the northern latitudes have to offer.
