Research

ResearchWelcome to Viticulture research in the Lake Erie Grape Production Region.

Along Lake Erie's Southeast shoreline, the land in New York and Pennsylvania quickly rises over 700 feet to the Allegheny Plateau. Sandwiched between the temperature moderating waters of Lake Erie and the 700 foot earthen wall sits a narrow band of land ideal for agricultural fruit production in the Northeastern, U.S. Although also home to the production of peaches, cherries, apples, blueberries, and other fruit crops, agriculture in the region is dominated by grape production with Concord as the main variety. Viticulture research at the Cornell Vineyard Laboratory focuses on improving grape production in this unique region.
