Vitis 'Frontenac'
Vitis 'Frontenac' is a cold-hardy, disease-resistant grapevine developed by the University of Minnesota. It is a hybrid cross between Vitis riparia and Vitis vinifera, and is known for its ability to produce high-quality red wine in cold climates. The grapes are small and have a dark blue-black color with a high sugar content and moderate acidity, making them ideal for winemaking. 'Frontenac' grapes are typically harvested in late September to early October. The vine itself has large, lobed leaves that turn red in the fall, providing a colorful display. It is a vigorous grower and can reach heights of up to 15 feet, making it ideal for growing on arbors, trellises, or fences. Vitis 'Frontenac' is relatively easy to grow and is tolerant of a range of soil types, but prefers well-drained soils. It is also highly resistant to many common grape diseases, including powdery mildew and downy mildew. Overall, Vitis 'Frontenac' is a flavorful and hardy grapevine that is an excellent choice for home winemakers and commercial vineyards in cold climate regions.
