Description

New Product!

Makes wonderfully sophisticated reds. Wine writers have been waxing poetic about this variety for over a decade now because of its high sugar content and moderate acidity. This combination is capable of producing highly complex wines with a deep ruby color, exquisite tannins and flavors of blackberry, cherry, black pepper and allspice. The grapes are blue-black and gorgeous on the vines, which have a semi-upright habit and medium vigor. Developed by the University of Minnesota and introduced in 2006. Ripens early-to-mid September. Self-pollinating. ‘MN 1211’ cultivar.

Marquette Grape
This is my 2nd year with my Marquette vine and I am not sure it survived the winter yet. Last years growth was to establish the root system. Praying the MN cold winter wasn't too harsh for my vine!
