South Dakota State University is taking part in a project aimed at stimulating the grape and wine industry in South Dakota and a dozen other northern states with cold climates.
Wisconsin’s wineries are hopeful that this year’s warm, dry summer creates a big harvest for grapes.
The wet summer weather may just have an impact on your glass of wine. Some of Minnesota’s grape growers are now dealing with damaging effects of a long stretch of humidity and rain.
For most of us, we are being fancy if we put white wine in a white glass, and red in a red glass — or if we take the beer out of the can. But there are dozens of different types of glasses for specific varietals of wine and specific types of beer. So, can a glass really change the flavor of our drinks?
I’m skeptical. You go to Target now and see huge displays of Riedel glassware. (you can see them online here.) They’ve got glasses for red and white, of course. But there are also special glasses for pinot noir, and zinfandel, and cabernet.
