About New England Wines
Certain grapes varieties still manage to thrive in lower temperatures, and the University of Minnesota’s top research program cultivates about 12,000 such vines. Over the years, New England wineries have taken advantage of the cold hardy grape varieties to produce fine tasting wines, including Frontenac Blanc and Frontenac Gris.
