The 18th annual Nebraska Winery and Grape Growers Forum and Trade Show is rapidly approaching. University of Nebraska – Lincoln Extension viticulture specialist Paul Read says Nebraska has seen a nice sustainable growth in the wine industry.
In just over 20 years the number Nebraska wineries has grown to 30 and there are more than 100 grape growers in the state. Read says several white wines in Nebraska have won international competitions.
The event will be held March 5th through the 7th at the Omaha Marriott. Read says this is the first time the event is being held in Omaha. He says typically they cover three areas during the forum that include business practices, wine making and grape growing.
