A preliminary investigation into new wine grape varieties suited to Michigan conditions was conducted by a group of Michigan industry members. The focus of the work was on cultivars developed in Germany and used commercially in Europe. Organized through the Michigan Wine Foundation, the group was assisted by the Michigan Grape and Wine Industry Council in obtaining funding from the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development for this initial phase of exploratory work. A report on this project was released on January 28, 2016.
