Current Iowa grape growers are attempting to bring together information for Iowans interested in growing grapes for production. Another goal is the formation of an Iowa Grape growers association. Although the Iowa Wine industry has an interest in Iowa grape production there are also growers interested in landscape, floral and other uses of grapes. The grape growing industry in Iowa has a long history that is being renewed. This is primarily due to the success and popularity of the regional wines now being produced in Iowa. Iowans need to form an association that can work towards a state viticulture department and/or representative. This would be to provide assistance, information and support to those presently growing vineyards as well as continued expansion of this valuable alternative crop.
