Lake Erie Regional Grape Program Viticulture Extension Specialist Position Open-
The Lake Erie Regional Grape Program is an Extension team made up of collaborative efforts between Cornell and Penn State Universities and 5 county Extension offices. It is housed in Chautauqua County, NY in the middle of the Lake Erie Grape Belt, which runs from Niagara County, NY to Erie County, PA and consists of over 31,000 acres of grapes. This program partners with industry (Welch, National Grape, Constellation Brands, Walker's Wine Juice) to help to maintain and improve the vineyard operations in this region. The program is housed in a  state of the art facility built in 2009. We work collaboratively with the Cornell Research team that currently is working on a 2.8 million dollar SCRI grant focusing on mechanized vineyard management and digital data collection, "Efficient Vineyard".
