Grapes

 

Indiana has over 650 acres of wine grapes in production and new vineyards are being established each year. The state has over 70 wineries that produce over 1 million gallons of wine each year. The Purdue Wine Grape Team supports the grape and wine industry through research, education, and marketing development.  Our website provides links to our enology, viticulture, marketing and promotional activities.

 The Indiana Wine Grape Council provides funding and oversight for the program.  For grape production guidance see the series of publications and links below. The link to the eXtension website (www.extension.org/grapes) will take you to a new national database of grape growing information. If you have comments or questions, please contact Bruce Bordelon (bordelon@purdue.edu).
