Wine grapes in northwest Michigan were exposed to extremely cold temperatures in the early months of 2014. Some varieties suffered high levels of bud mortality. A look at numerous vinifera and hybrid wine grape varieties in the center's research vineyards will show the differences in how vines were injured and how specific pruning and training strategies may be employed to allow for the most favorable results as these vines recover during the growing season.
