North Country becoming wine country for local grape growers

As for Lamoy's most recent recognition, does it signify the future of a bustling new business market in the North Country?

"I see it being a piece," said Davis. "We're really just getting a sense for it. They have some wineries that are pretty well-established across the lake in Vermont and certainly this side of the lake seems to be pretty well-suited for it as well. So, that's kind of exciting."

"It could be a nice niche industry," he added.

The results of research from the Northern New York cold-hardy wine grape variety trials can be found on the Northern New York Agricultural Development Program Web site at www.nnyagdev.org.
