Watch the San Diego-based Roman Holiday Italian Ensemble (www.romanholidaymusic.com) crush the grapes Italian-style at grape stomps and wine festivals throughout California.
For more than 30 years, the Horticulture Research Center at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum and its rustic vineyards have been home to research on producing cold-hardy grapes and making the best wines from them. Jim Luby, a professor of horticultural science, is in charge of the breeding program along with Peter Hemstad. The Center has bred four varieties of cold hardy grapes: Marquette, La Crescent, Frontenac and Frontenac Gris. These varieties have formed the backbone of the Minnesota wine industry as well as the northeastern region of the United States.
