Growing Grapes in Maine

Wineries in Maine prefer to use apples, blueberries, and cranberries because they are more suitable to the cold. However, there is but a small portion of grape growers and wine makers attempting to produce Maine wine from locally-grown grapes. Cold-hardy French-American hybrids and native American varieties can be found in this region. Concord is a hardy favorite, but they are usually only used for display in the gardens of Maine because of their long growing seasons. The hybrids Fredonia and Delaware have shorter growing seasons, only about 140 days to ripen, and will do better for growers who want to cultivate wine grapes.
