Re-establishing Wine Grapes in West Georgia

May 08, 2014

Members of the Vineyard and Winery Association of West Georgia joined staff from the University of Georgia Tuesday in planting 20 Norton vines for a trial vineyard at the university's campus in Griffin. Working on behalf of the Missouri Wine and Grape Board, the University of Missouri's Grape and Wine Institute recently sent the vines to re-establish the grape and wine industry in western Georgia.
