Your rating: None

Kansas has potential for successful commercial grape production. Kansas has several factors that encourage grape production, including soils that are adapted to grape culture, water available for irrigation, and abundant sunshine. Grape acreage in Kansas has steadily increased since the first commercial wineries opened in 1988. Demand for Kansas-grown grapes also has increased because the wine industry has outgrown the capabilities of expanding vineyards.
