Viticulture in South Dakota
The wine industry in South Dakota has experienced steady growth over the past 10 years, and demand for locally grown, high-quality wine grapes is strong. In addition to the potential market opportunities, some people are attracted to grape growing because they like working outdoors, enjoy working with plants, and enjoy wine. Grapes may be a good alternative crop to traditional agronomic crops, especially on land that is marginal for cultivation.
