The UW is looking for vintners interested in purchasing grapes grown at the West Madison Agricultural Research Station (WMARS). They grow these grapes in research vineyard plots. The revenue from selling them helps offset the cost of maintaining those vineyards to be able to continue doing research to support the grape and wine industry in Wisconsin.
The blocks are very small (only for research), so they don’t produce a lot of fruit. Last year they had a hard time finding someone interest in purchasing them. They currently anticipate harvesting:
- 3,000 lb Petite Pearl
- 600 lb Brianna
- 600 lb Frontenac
- 300 lb Marquette
- 300 lb LaCrescent
