Cold Climate Grape Day

CLAYTON, N.Y. -- Winery owners and grape growers joined together with researchers from Cornell University and the Cooperative Extension in Clayton for the Cold Climate Grape Field Day.

The event was held at Coyote Moon Winery and gave experts the chance to compare notes and hear the latest in research and discovery in the wine industry.

The group also got a chance to tour the aging and bottling facility at the vineyard.

“It’s a great region up here. There’s just the beginning of the potential being met and I see this region booming in terms of growers, wineries, tourists and much else,” said Jim Trezise, President of the New York Wine and Grape Foundation.

”We’ve got a most historic meeting here today with all kinds of folks from Cornell University up doing a research project in our vineyard,” said Phil Ranzazzo, Coyote Moon Winery owner.

The development of hard grape varieties within the last decade has made it possible for those in the North Country to join in on the wine making process.
