Cornell Cultivates a 'Noble Fruit'

Three new wine grape varieties developed at Cornell

Cornell researchers perfect and introduce wine grapes that produce high-quality varietal wines in the East. Cornell labs provide analysis of NYS grape juice and wines as well as testing new grape varieties. Extension programs serve up a suite of services and information. And, undergraduates are educated to fill the growing need for qualified people to manage vineyards and run wineries.
