How’s Marquette Doing in New York?
New York Cork Report reports that New York Grape Growers are having mixed results with Marquette. In the middle and end of the article, the Cork Report has some good interviews with winemakers who are making estate grown Marquette in Upstate New York. Last year, Midwest Wine Press visited with Gerry Barnard (correct spelling) of Victory View Vineyard in Schaghticoke, NY. Gary reported that he is pleased with the production and hardiness of his Marquette. Midwest Wine Press does not review wines, but Victory View’s Marquette was on par with the better Marquette being bottled in Minnesota.
